Gallery: Boeing 787 prepares for maiden flight

The first passenger flight of Boeing's 787 Dreamliner is expected to take off on Tuesday at 10:00 AM PT (weather permitting). The new jet will include one very interested passenger - SmartPlanet's John Dodge. John will have a full report and photos soon after landing.

Boeing is putting their new jet through its final testing phases. Here it's taking a taxi test where it reached 150mph enabling the pilots to lift the nose off the ground.
