EVERETT, Wash. ( TheStreet) -- A veritable cargo of space-age substances are taking a ride on Boeing's (BA - Get Report) 787 Dreamliner Tuesday as the seminal and controversial aircraft makes its first-ever test flight through the skies above Seattle.For the companies that produce the polymers and metals and fibers that go into the Dreamliner, Boeing's business will almost assuredly boost their prospects, and their stock prices -- but only if the 787 takes its hoped-for place among the fleets of the world's airlines. Investors have bid up shares of Boeing in advance of Tuesday's test flight, but they haven't really done the same to the Dreamliner's biggest suppliers.
