Boeing 787 Dreamliner
Yesterday, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner made its first flight in commercial service, flying more than 200 passengers from Tokyo to Hong Kong. Chris Sloan, an aviation writer who was covering the first flight for Airways magazine and Airchive.com, was one of those passengers, and he shared his experience--and these photos--with CNET.
