Boeing 787 Dream Tour Makes Stop In San Diego

CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boeing [NYSE: BA] 787 Dreamliner arrived today at San Diego's Lindbergh Field, continuing its six-month worldwide Dream Tour. The airplane will be in San Diego for a limited time for partners, media and Boeing and Goodrich [NYSE: GR] employees to experience the revolutionary technology and passenger experience firsthand.

"Goodrich was honored to earn the contract to provide our innovative nacelle system for this game-changing airplane," said Goodrich Aerostructures president Marc Duvall, "We look forward to continuing to work with Boeing on the 787 and to supporting it in service for decades to come."

Goodrich's Aerostructures business, headquartered in Chula Vista, Calif., is responsible for the design and manufacture of the nacelles and thrust reversers for the Boeing 787.

Goodrich has a broad range of technology on the innovative aircraft. In addition to the nacelles and thrust reversers, Goodrich also supplies the flight deck lighting system and cabin attendant seating as well as: the cargo system; wheels and electric braking system; exterior lighting; proximity sensing system; and the fuel quantity indicating system and fuel management software. In addition, Goodrich was selected by Rolls-Royce to provide the engine control system and sensor suite for the Trent 1000 engine, an engine option for the 787.

The airplane, ZA003, was originally used for flight testing but has been elegantly refurbished to showcase the standard capabilities and features of the 787.

"We're excited to share the 787's innovative technologies with Goodrich's employees who helped make it possible," said George Maffeo, vice president, 787 Supplier Management. "There's a bright future ahead for the Dreamliner, and for the relationship between Boeing and Goodrich."

Made from composite materials, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner is the first mid-size airplane capable of flying long-range routes and will allow airlines to open new, non-stop routes preferred by the traveling public. As a result of innovative technologies, the airplane offers unparalleled operating economics, fuel efficiency and passenger comfort. More than 800 787s are on order by more than 50 airlines, a testament to the airplane's unique capabilities
