A Boeing 787 Dreamliner and a 2012 McLaren MP4-12C at Paine Field. Yea, I will take two of each, thanks.

Boeing 787 Dreamliner ZA003 and a 2012 McLaren MP4-12C at Paine Field. Yea, I will take two of each, thanks.

As a fan of airplanes and cars, I got very excited seeing a 2012 McLaren MP4-12C with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner in my most recent Road and Track magazine. Looks like the magazine had the car at Paine Field and over to the Future of Flight for some photos.

They also had a great interview with Mike Sinnett who is the Vice President, 787 Chief Project Engineer at Boeing. The magazine asks Sinnett about the carbon fiber used in the Dreamlinrer. Head on over the RoadandTrack.com for the full interview.

A Look at Delta Air Lines Fleet and Buying Nine MD-90s

All I can say is that both are incredibly sexy!

But if you could only have one?

Depends – am I paying the operating costs? Or man, think of the taxes…

I think I would take the 787 and charge a bunch of airline nerds money to fly around in it. Then sell it and get a used airliner and used super car!


Naturally, since this is fantasy, operating costs are not an issue.

..they probably both cost the same too…

AA will hang the best engines on the wings, the GEnx engines.

The Rotten Reliability Trent1000 so far has blown itself and a test cell apart and many RR engine change-outs from the 787 flight test program.
Also four T1000s with cracked compressor blades. We do not like RR here at Boeing.

The car pix with ZA003 were taken in stall B-3 at Boeing Field. They brought the car in a shipping container right out to the plane, rolled it out of the box and got their pix. They put the car back in the box, put the box on a truck and they were gone.

Well, that is not nearly as exciting as I hope it was with the two racing around… oh well. Thanks for the info.
