Boeing confirms Dreamliner test flight
Text size Aa Aa

Boeing has said the 787 Dreamliner will make its much delayed first test flight by the end of this year and it plans to start delivering aircraft to customers late next year.

The US planemaker also announced it is writing off 2.5 billion dollars, which is the cost of the first three test planes as they will have no commercial market value because of modifications that needed to be made to them.
