The next big thing in Commercial Aviation flies today

It has been delayed for a couple of years, but the 787 Dreamliner is scheduled to take flight for the first time today.

The 787 takes advantage of new materials, composites, that should reduce the wear and tear caused by the higher pressuraization that is required by the current aluminum airframes and skins used by passenger aircraft.

The story from CNN:

Other advantages will be better air-quality in the plane and more comfort on the longer flights that Boeing is targeting the 787 as a solution. Flying may be a pain these days, but the Dreamliner is supposed to help.
