Boeing Dreamliner's maiden flight

World's first airliner made out of carbon fibre and touted as an aviation breakthrough, makes history.

    After three years of delays, Boeing's 787 Dreamliner has made its maiden commercial voyage. The All Nippon Airlines (ANA) flight took off from Tokyo bound for Hong Kong. The Dreamliner has suffered a string of setbacks and was originally scheduled for delivery in 2008.
