    A revolutionary plane finally takes off. The 787 is a shining example of global collaborative product development. I work for a company which was a part of the 787 engineering team - and I can tell you we are all very proud. This plane truly belongs to the world - and not just one country or company.

    It's all well and good, but you do know that the US airlines will make sure that the seating on the 787s is just as crappy and cramped as it is on current planes, right?

    Would it be too much to ask for captions for all of these pics? Be nice to know what it is that I am supposed to make all the ooooooohing and aaaaaaaaaaaahing noises over.

    Sorry, not that much of a "big deal" to me, certainly not in the category of flying the first jet back in the 1950's or the Concorde SST.
    The 787 IS an accomplishment in that it is significantly lighter and thus more efficient. That and some wowie colors on the ceiling.

    The Baltimore Ravens are a professional American football franchise based in Baltimore, Maryland.

    The Baltimore Ravens are officially a quasi-expansion franchise, having originated in 1995 with the Cleveland Browns relocation controversy after Art Modell, then owner of the Cleveland Browns, announced his intention to relocate the team to Baltimore.[1] Modell's team was named the "Baltimore Ravens" after a fan contest and began play in the 1996 season.

    The Ravens' triumph over the New York Giants in Super Bowl XXXV at the conclusion of the 2000 season remains their best season. The Ravens are currently one of only four teams to win in their lone Super Bowl appearance, along with the New Orleans Saints, New York Jets, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.<a href="http://www.ravensproshoponline.com/anquan-boldin-jersey">Anquan Boldin Jersey</a>
