Boeing Showcases 787-9 Dreamliner and P-8A Poseidon at Farnborough Airshow

July 8, 2014

Boeing reported that the new 787-9 Dreamliner and the P-8A Poseidon will participate for the first time in flying displays at the Farnborough International Airshow, which runs July 14-20.

This year's airshow marks the 40th anniversary of Boeing's participation at Farnborough.

In its release, Boeing said the 787-9 - flight test airplane ZB001 -- will be on static and flying display from July 14 through mid-day July 18.

The Company noted that the P-8A, a military derivative of the company's Next-Generation 737-800, is a multi-mission aircraft that provides anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare capabilities for the U.S. Navy and Indian Navy (P-8I).

It will join Boeing's multi-role F/A-18E/F Super Hornet fighter in demonstrating versatile capabilities during daily flying displays. Both aircraft also will be on static display.

Boeing said it is working with customers and partners to bring several other aircraft to the show, including Qatar Airways' Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, which will be on static display July 14-18.

The Boeing Maritime Surveillance Aircraft (MSA) will also be on static display, making its debut at Farnborough. Built on the Bombardier Challenger 605 business jet, the Boeing MSA leverages P- 8 mission systems to provide maritime and overland surveillance, anti-piracy, coastal security and search-and-rescue capabilities.

Boeing is an aerospace company and manufacturer of commercial jetliners and military aircraft.
