Air Canada Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner (C-FNOH) arriving at Toronto Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) on a marvelously beautiful winter afternoon 2019. This is the seventh addition to our Air Canada Dreamliner study in which we aspire to photograph the company’s 37 Boeing 787s. The first Dreamliner was a 787-8 variant received in May, 2014; the first 787-9 was acquired in July, 2015 . C-FNOH was delivered in May, 2015. Since then, it has served a mostly incident free lifespan. The Boeing Dreamliner family is certified to operate two different engines: the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 and the (General Electric) GE-nx. Both are interchangeable with each other and primarily contribute to the 787’s unprecedented efficiency. Altogether, the 787 engines accumulated over 12,000 hours of testing, 4,800 flight hours, 1,800 flights, and 15,000 engine cycles before entry into service; and although the Dreamliner’s first flight was in 2009, the engines were first tested in 2006 before certification the following year. Indeed, the engines have earned their place as some of the most efficient in the skies. Enjoy the image!
