The Bowing Dreamliner Takes Flight

Boeing’s Dreamliner aircraft, dubbed the world's most efficient aircraft, takes its first transatlantic flight from the U.K. to Mexico. The aircraft is constructed from carbon fiber and plastic. Boeing says that the Dreamliner is 20 percent more fuel efficient and 60 percent quieter than equivalent aircrafts currently being used. (Photo: Scott Olson/Getty Images)
