Dreamliner

787-800.jpg

Normally I could care less what commercial airliner I’m sitting in as long as it gets me where I got to go safe and sound.

But this plane is worth a mention. It’s constructed of carbon composites which allow for a much lighter aircraft that will withstand corrosion over the traditional material: aluminum. It’s construction will also provide a cabin that is more comfortable as it can be pressurized to an equivalent of six thousand feet altitude (conventional pressure is the equivalent of eight thousand feet). And the carbon composite is stronger than aluminum permitting the larger windows that the craft features. Yay!

The planes uses twenty percent less fuel which should bring down the prices of tickets. Think of it as the first step in being green up in the skies.
