— Boeing's 787-9 Dreamliner, a stretched version of the 787-8, is one of dozens of airplanes on display at the Farnborough International Airshow outside London.

Boeing delivered the first 787-9 to Air New Zealand earlier this month.

The plane on display at the Airshow was a test airplane and is still filled with test equipment. But it will soon be refurbished and delivered to a customer, Boeing officials said.

Spirit AeroSystems builds the Dreamliner's nose section in Wichita.
