Summary Since the introduction of the wide bodies of the late 1960s and early 1970s (followed by the Boeing 777 in 1994), there have been no truly game-changing new passenger-airliner designs until now, with the development of the Airbus A380 and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Through the eyes of chief test pilot Mike Carriker, a legendary contemporary pilot who is flight rated in more than one hundred airplanes, we will see how a century of aviation trial and error, and some of the seminal airplanes of the twentieth century, influenced the design of the Dreamliner. Legends of Flight will give audiences an insider's view of how a modern aircraft is built and make them privy to the manufacturing challenges and incredible financial risks companies assume when they embark on radical new designs. In the end, this unique experience shows how the 787 might affect the next one hundred years of aeronautical design.
