CHARLESTON, S.C. -- The newest and longest Boeing Dreamliner, the 787-10, is headed for Seattle less than a week after its first flight at Charleston International Airport.

Boeing Airplanes tweeted about the flight Thursday morning around 9:30 a.m. EDT. The Dreamliner is undergoing a comprehensive flight test.

The Dreamliner was expected to arrive in Seattle shortly after 3 p.m. PDT. You can track the flight's progress here.


The $300 million aircraft went on a nearly five-hour trek through the skies of South Carolina last Friday, starting and ending at Charleston International Airport. Boeing pilots say they took the aircraft to 20,000 feet and hit a top speed of 288 miles per hour.
