The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is one of the most incredible vehicles on the planet, and in this video you can see one being built in just two days.

The Dreamliner 787-9 is a mid-sized twin engine passenger jet, capable of speeds up to 800mph (1280kph) – not far from the speed of sound.

Fitted to carry 280 passengers, it is one of the most popular jets on the market today, and used by many different carriers.

The Dreamliner is 63 meters long and has a 60 meter wingspan, with those wings being made from carbon fibre.

That means that it’s lighter and therefore better equipped for long haul flights. 

In this video, you can see how one of the Dreamliner aircraft was put together in just two days, before being put to work for British Airways.

It’s an outstanding feat of engineering, and shows how efficient and attentive to detail the aeronautical industry can be – like this aircraft, which practically defies the laws of physics.
