The Boeing 787 "Dreamliner" introduced multiple technical innovations to the world of commercial air travel. Through its widespread use of composite materials in primary structure, more electric (less pneumatic) systems architecture, and advanced aerodynamic and engine technology, the 787 achieved a 20% reduction in fuel burn compared to previous airplanes in its class. It also maintains a lower maximum cabin altitude for improved passenger comfort and offers larger windows for viewing the scenery outside. The 787 is roughly the size of the 767 but with the longer range of the 777.

Initially marketed as the 7E7, the airplane was designated 787 at the time of its official launch in April 2004. It was originally planned for delivery in 2008, but the challenging technical and business aspects of the program resulted in schedule delays. First flight finally occurred on December 15, 2009, with first delivery to All Nippon Airways (ANA) on September 26, 2011.

The initial version, the 787-8, can carry 210 to 250 passengers. The longer 787-9 carries 250 to 290 passengers. The longest version, the 787-10, accommodates 300 to 330 passengers. These figures vary with airline seating configuration choices and flight range.

The Museum's 787-8, known as ZA003, was the third Dreamliner built. It first flew on March 14, 2010. In addition to its role in the flight test and certification program, Boeing flew ZA003 to 23 countries during a global marketing showcase of the 787 called the Dream Tour. At the Museum, the airplane's interior is partially configured as an airliner and flight test aircraft, with the remaining space now devoted to displays and artifacts covering the development of the 787.
