It is bad journalism, EETimes, to end your article with a statement with no other statements to back it up."... we could be witnessing the bursting of a bubble that might make housing foreclosures look like small change." If half of the $857.4 billion mentioned as the next ten forecast of revenue for commercial airplanes did not materialize, the world economy would not even flinch.

I'm not a pilot, but have flown private aircraft under instruction. THIS is actually a pretty major accomplishment. It's the first 'FULLY COMPOSIT' , twin isle jet air-liner with the newest tech. turbofans available. They sip fuel compared to the engines just 20 years ago, and our (High priced) military and space tech. is finally making it into the commercial and private markets. The future for our high altitude and low orbit projects will always involve carbon composits, considering the cost of low Earth orbbit payloads is about $20,000 @ lb. VIRGIN AEROSPACE may be onto something !

Way to go Boeing! This is fantastic and I sincerely wish them fantastic success with their 787 Dreamliner! So nice to see America making something to be proud of. (Hello? Auto industry?) It will also be very interesting to see how the next half-decade pan out and see if Boeing’s 787 or Airbus’ ginormous A380 come out on top as the choice of airlines and passengers. One of the two should emerge on-top of the industry. We’ll see.
