Boeing 787 Dreamliner not coming to Bangalore for Aero India 2011

The Times of India newspaper published earlier today that Boeing would be bringing its 787 Dreamliner to the Aero India show due to commence next week.

Sources at Boeing told Bangalore Aviation that the Times of India story was wrong. The source went on to indicate that Aero India is a defence oriented show and it did not make any sense for the company to bring the new civilian jetliner to the show.

So our hearts experienced a momentary flutter of short-lived joy.
