It’s kismet! Shortly after reading Patrick Smith’s distress at not having been invited to the rollout of the Dreamliner, this link landed in my in-box.
Boeing’s Dreamliner makes debut

The new 787 Dreamliner draws hordes of spectators to the tarmac at Boeing’s assembly plant in Everett, Wash., on Sunday. It was the first public appearance for the midsize airliner, which is just starting to go into production.

If current trends continue, maybe I’ll get a chance to ride a Dreamliner when, as a clapped out, quarter-century-old beast, they put it on the ORD-LAX run promptly in 2033! Until then, I’m going to have to get serious about downsizing myself (my lifetime challenge!), so I fit better in today’s downsized aircraft.
It’s it for now. Thanks,
