Boeing's newest passenger plane at EAA

Posted:

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- Boeing's newest passenger plane arrived at the Experimental Aircraft Association convention Friday and opened for public tours for the first time.

Boeing says the 787 Dreamliner uses 20 percent less fuel than similar aircraft of its size. It also has bigger windows and more individual passenger space. The company says some of the new technologies on the aircraft can't be seen. The plane has cleaner cabin air, lower cabin altitude, higher humidity and a smoother ride.

The Dreamliner leaves AirVenture at 6 p.m.
