How FLIGHT OF DREAMS was born
The Boeing 787 is the latest model created by Boeing,
the world's largest airplane manufacturer, and 35% of these 787s are built right here in Chubu,
with parts sourced from Centrair's Boeing 747 Large Cargo Freighters
(known as Dreamlifters),before being sent to Boeing's final assembly factory in the United States.
Through the construction of the Dreamlifter Operations Center (DOC),
built to temporarily house parts of 787s before they are shipped, Centrair and Boeing have been cooperating
in order to streamline the 787 manufacturing/shipping process.
As a result of this cooperation, when the first 787 ever built (ZA001) ended its life as a test aircraft,
its last flight was back to its birthplace in the Chubu region, where it was donated to Centrair by Boeing.
By exhibiting the historically valuable ZA001, Centrair hopes to introduce as many people as possible to the wonders of airplane manufacturing and the aviation industry,
and to make FLIGHT OF DREAMS a place where dreams and ambitions about the sky are born.
