LOT Polish Airlines arriving at Toronto Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) from Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport (WAW) during a superbly lit Sunday evening 2019. From an approaching view of Boeing's newest airliner, first launched in 2011 with All Nippon Airways after years of preliminary work and financial questions, it becomes incredibly clear as to just how advanced and beautiful the Dreamliner's physique truly is. As a new design, also note that the specific aircraft in this image, SP-LSE, was delivered to LOT, the Polish flag carrier, in April of 2019, a few months before pictured. In regards to the Dreamliner's wings - arguably the jetliner's most gorgeous design aspect - they incorporate a plethora of advanced, space-age materials, allowing for remarkable economic gains for any operator and simply awe-inspiring feats. The wings, formulated of carbon-fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP), are primarily composite, which, along with the fuselage, designates the Dreamliner as the first commercial aircraft to utilize a composite design. This means nothing, however, if the materials fail to endure the monumental stress experienced by the average jetliner; unsurprisingly, the aircraft and its iconic swapping arms have excelled in this area as well. During one stress test, the wings of the 787 flexed an astounding 25 feet without suffering any catastrophic failures, a testament to its remarkable engineering. From an iconic airline and now iconic plane, enjoy the image!
