Boeing delivers first 787 Dreamliner to ANA
US planemaker Boeing has officially delivered its first 787 Dreamliner to Japan's All Nippon Airways (ANA), after three years of delays.
The Dreamliner had originally been scheduled for delivery in 2008, but Boeing has suffered a string of setbacks, the latest being an onboard fire during test flights in January.
The plane was presented to ANA's president, Shinichiro Ito, by the head of Boeing's commercial division, Jim Albaugh, at a ceremony in Everett, Washington.
On Tuesday it will fly to Tokyo.
