Dream trip to see Dreamliner

Have your say

STAFF from The University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre went to Heathrow Airport to see the culmination of their hard work on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the world’s most advanced passenger aeroplane.

Boeing’s new 787 Dreamliner visited the airport as part of Boeing’s Dream Tour. Specialist researchers at the AMRC worked on the aircraft for over 18 months to develop the optimum machining processes to be adopted in the manufacture of new generation landing gear.

AMRC is one of a number of companies from the UK that forms part of the 787’s global supply chain, including Rolls-Royce.
