Dale Belter and Kevin Schoenen prepare the Boeing 7E7 Dreamliner model for testsTOMORROW

The future's closer than
you think-especially at Boeing, whose people are working on groundbreaking, high-tech products. Here's
a look at two high-profile next-generation Boeing
programs: the 7E7 Dreamliner commercial airplane, and efforts to connect the C-17 Globemaster III military cargo aircraft into
network-centric operations.





the 7E7 multimedia experienceWhen Boeing introduces a new airplane to the market, it does so only after ensuring it will provide value to everyone associated with the product: airlines, passengers, Boeing and its partners.

For the Boeing 7E7 Dreamliner, officially launched in late April, the value story is compelling for all audiences. With a range of up to 8,500 nautical miles and a seating capacity of 217 to 257 in three-class seating, the twin-aisle, twinjet airplane will bring the economics, speed and range of large airplanes such as the 747 and the 777 to the mid-size airplane market. The 7E7's design makes the airplane a compelling choice for travelers and airlines. It provides tremendous opportunity for Boeing's partners in the program. In addition, the airplane confirms Boeing's role as the worldwide leader in the aerospace field-and as the company that's shaping the industry's future.



Two U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster IIIs take to the sky.Imagine you're flying a large military airplane into a hostile environment. Precious lives and strategic cargo are aboard. Your mission and their survival may depend on a capability that doesn't exist yet: the ability to integrate critical information, in real time, across networks now incompatible.

Imagine a company with the innovation and capabilities to solve this problem. And imagine an aircraft able to show how it's done.

Now, stop imagining.

The company is Boeing. The aircraft is the C-17 Globemaster III, an advanced airlifter assembled in Long Beach, Calif.
