Boeing rolled out its first 787-9 Dreamliner, and this aircraft has also become the first 787 to don the new Boeing Commercial Airplanes (BCA) livery.
The new look began with the 747-8 and evolved with the 737 MAX. The new livery retains many of the features of the original 787-8 livery, adding a prominent number on the tail to help distinguish among models within the same product family.
With the fuselage stretched by 20 feet (6 meters), the 787-9 will carry 40 more passengers an additional 300 nautical miles (555 kilometers). First delivery to launch customer Air New Zealand is set for mid-2014.
