Boeing schedules 787 Dreamliner pair for Paris Air Show


A pair of superefficient 787 Dreamliners will be the featured Boeing products on display at the Paris Air Show, which begins June 17 at the Le Bourget exhibition center.


One 787 will perform daily flying displays from Monday through Friday, while the other – a Qatar Airways 787 – will be on static display. The Boeing ScanEagle unmanned aircraft system will appear as part of the U.S. Corral display throughout the show.


Boeing is again proud to sponsor for the eighth year the Engineering Student of the Year Award, the world's leading competition to recognize students whose work shows the greatest promise, aptitude and dedication in the field of aerospace technology. This year's recipient will be recognized at the Flight Awards at the Musee de l'Air et de l'Espace, Le Bourget on Tuesday evening (5.30-7.30 p.m.).


Boeing will hold a series of media briefings and associated activities about key programs throughout the show. Media should check the daily briefing schedule at the media centre and the Boeing media chalet, situated in chalet row A 324, for updates.
