Read the: README Pilots NOTES AND HISTORY included it will explain the features of the 848 series

The 787 is a totally new aircraft, the first totally new plane from Boeing since 1969.
Mostly plastic, sorry Carbon Fiber Composite, parts all over the place.

The 848 is quieter, cleaner, and more comfortable. With no engines to support the wings, they are thinner lighter weight and stronger wings without bracing necessary to carry engine weight. Also these are dry wings and do not carry fuel in them, making them even lighter and thinner.

Meanwhile AirBus Industries has captured the world size record with the AirBus 380.
Nice plane, really big, no REALLY BIG, good fuel economy, lots of seats, good range.

Expect China to produce large commercial aircraft by 2035.

WingSpan: 300ft
Length: 188ft
Empty Weight: 450,000lbs
Maximum fuel on board: 700,000lbs
Maximum Take off weight: 1,260,000
At MTOW Runway length: 7,200ft for takeoff and 4,000ft for landing

At 1,260,000 take off weight
440 Passengers and 14,000nmi+ range
Normal Cruise 573mph
Maximum speed mach 2.5

This is the first commercial jet that uses Super Cruise like the FA/22 Raptor.
The engines are n3+ generation high by pass and nominally rated at 115,300lbs thrust.
That is what today’s GE-90-115B produces. This engine has been bench tested at 135,000lbs thrust.
