May 14: Two pilots from Japanese carrier All Nippon Airways (ANA) became the first non-Boeing company crew to fly the 787 Dreamliner during a test flight on May 12.

ANA pilots Captain Masayuki Ishii, director of 787 pre-operations planning, and Captain Masami Tsukamoto, manager of 787 pre-operations pilots joined Boeing’s chief test pilot Captain Mike Carriker and co-pilot Captain Christine Walsh for the three-hour flight.

ANA is set to become the first commercial operator of the 787 with the first of 50 aircraft scheduled to be delivered later this year.
