Boeing 787 (2): Wings and fuselage

At the museum “Flight of Dreams,” I explored in, under, and around the airplane, looking the 787 Dreamliner Explorer app downloaded on my smartphone.

Look at the wings. They are made of CFRP. They are durable and flexible.

I fully enjoyed my exploration. The app was very informative and helpful. After getting home, I created a notebook dedicated to Boeing 787. I wrote down what I had learned in the museum and transcribed the contents of the app. I will continue to study about airplanes with this notebook.
