Boeing 787 landing in Charleston Monday
Fresh from the Paris Air Show and other stops in Europe, Boeing’s 787 will make its local debut in North Charleston on Monday.
The so-called Dreamliner is expected to land at Charleston International Airport around noon, said Boeing spokeswoman Candy Eslinger. It is coming from Poland.
Eslinger said the jet is scheduled to leave Wednesday, and it is expected to spend a good portion of its stay in Boeing’s new 787 factory at the airport.
The jet will not be open for public tours.
Boeing is set to start assembling 787s at its local campus in the next few weeks. Its new $750 million North Charleston plant will make up to three of the twin-engine passenger planes each month by 2013.
