Boeing's 787 makes international debut

Boeing Co.'s highly anticipated _ and long delayed _ 787 jetliner has made its international debut _ landing Sunday in England to be the star attraction at the Farnborough International Air Show.
The airliner, the first passenger jet to be largely built from lightweight and environmentally friendly composite material, is the first of the five test aircraft to leave U.S. airspace.
Its appearance at Farnborough, which alternates years with the Le Bourget airshow outside Paris as the premier aerospace and defense industry gathering, comes as Boeing and arch European rival Airbus seek to rejuvenate plane sales in the aftermath of the global recession _ and face new threats to their competitive duopoly.
