Boeing, Wednesday, unveiled a real photo of the 787 dreamliner’s interior for the first time. Shown above is the picture, taken on board the third test flight 787, known as the ZA003. The interior of ZA003 includes work stations for engineers, flight-test equipment and racks of instruments that monitor the aircraft and systems during tests.
While much of the early flight testing is focused on aircraft flying qualities and system testing related to flight, the interior must also pass certification right down to the stowage bins. ZA003’s interior includes 135 seats, lavatories and crew rest stations. The interior will be tested as part of the certification process. Many of the features Boeing has been touting, such as window transparency that can be controlled by the passenger, are on the test cards for this airplane.
