Nice aircraft, although I think it's more an evolution than a revolution.

I believe the kids these days call that "crowd surfing". I think it has something to do with a "mosh pit".

WOW! Amazing! The people cover the landing gears and the engines! What a spectacular view! This ceremony recalls the rollout of B747 in 1969, but one thing was different that this time was a new century, new plane and more people! Cheers to all!

A much better picture than the ones provided by Boeing: at least you could judge the actual size of the aircraft by the people!

As if the plane was floating on a sea of people.
Boeing has come a long way from the 247. however, the 247 was great for its day and time.

Ohh! this is more impresive than a rock and roll concert. (how many people, look all the production behind, and the euphoria to know this wonderful bird)

What a zize (look at the engines) I thought that the 787 was more smaller.

Just exellent.

It has a very surreal quality about it, and conveys a scale of the aircraft that leaves one breathless!

Beautiful picture as others said, an industrial carnival. No doubt Boeing has this revolutionary innovation: full composite airframe structure, Enabled... Great jobs. But have industry really understand all the risks, ready to take the new jump...

I would like to point out that this aircraft truly is a revolution in flight. To me it seems as if those who see it simply as an evolution are paying too much attention to the looks of this aircraft and not enough to the method by which it is created. It is in the composite barrel construction that this airplane obtains its position as revolutionary and not in its looks as it seems is the basis for many of these comments.

Either way, this is an amazing aircraft and I just can't wait to see her fly!

Can't wait to fly it. 777 pilots are going to get preference for the 787 (a good deal of cockpit commonality), so maybe they'll draw my name! . . .

It is quite funny to read the comments from back then, knowing now that the date 07/08/2007 was a marketing deadline and that the aircraft on show was a just a shell.
