Boeing 787 Dreamliner ZA001

787 Donation in Nagoya, Japan

More than 100 Japanese government officials and leaders from Boeing and its supplier partners joined on July 7, 2015 in celebrating Boeing’s donation of ZA001 to Central Japan International Airport (Centrair) in Nagoya, Japan, where it will be placed on static display.

"Centrair has been a wonderful partner from the start of the 787 journey," said George Maffeo, Boeing Japan president. "Without the vision, flexibility and teamwork of former CEO Kawakami and now CEO Tomozoe, we could not have built our Dreamlifter-based production system to achieve our production goals for the 787. Centrair literally gave flight to the Dreamliner’s wings. What more fitting place could ZA001 come to rest."

ZA001 touched down on it’s last flight on Monday, June 22, 2015 at Chubu Centrair International Airport in Nagoya, Japan. More than 1,000 people witnessed the landing, and at least half stayed for a public forum with the pilots who flew it from Seattle to Japan: Capts. Mike Carriker, chief pilot for new airplane development; Randy Neville, chief model pilot, 787; and Craig Bomben, vice president of Flight Operations for Boeing Test & Evaluation. The three pilots answered questions from local radio host and aviation enthusiast Hiroaki Sakai.

ZA001 is the third of three original flight-test 787s that Boeing is sharing with museums around the world to inspire future generations, communities and airplane enthusiasts. ZA002 and ZA003 already are on display at the Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson, Ariz.(www.pimaair.org), and the Museum of Flight in Seattle (www.museumofflight.org), respectively.
