MIAMI — An All Nippon Airways (ANA) Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner will appear in demonstration flights July 11-13 at the Farnborough International Airshow in Farnborough, United Kingdom.

ANA made history by becoming the launch customer of the 787 Dreamliner, and it makes history again as it’s the first time a Japanese carrier makes a flight demonstration at the show. The airplane is specially marked with decals prominently featuring Mount Fuji and cherry blossoms, two iconic symbols of Japan.

Boeing released a video offering a preview of the planned demonstration, as well as additional maneuvers to showcase the airplane’s performance and capabilities, including high-banking turns that show wing flex and side-to-side movements to demonstrate roll authority and handling characteristics.

To date, ANA operates 36 787-8s and 11 787-9s, with pending deliveries for 30 of the variant plus three 787-10s.

In 2015, Boeing performed a similar flying display at the Le Bourget Air Show in Paris with a Vietnam Airlines Dreamliner, while the year before one 787-9 test aircraft also appeared in the flying display at Farnborough.

Stay tuned! your Airways team will be covering the latest events of the 2016 Farnborough Air Show.
