Update June 28: The only thing bigger than the 787 Dreamliner (and 747 cargo companion Dreamlifter) is the copious amount of coverage of yesterday's event.

My preferred comes by way of NBC News 2 who has a not-too lengthy video report about the plane's arrival and the general revelry; watch that here.

The Post and Courier also has a worthy more traditional report and if you'd just like to learn more about the plane head to Wikipedia.

Update June 27 12:50 p.m.: The 787 touched down in Charleston just a few minutes ago and already a flurry of photos have hit Twitter.

User @CHSAeroAnalyst has a slew up to gander at over here.

First report June 24: While it will still be some time until a 787 Dreamliner is completed at Boeing's new North Charleston assembly plant, we're just hours from the modern much-delayed plane making its first visit.

A 787 is making stops around the globe on the heels of the Paris Air Show and is slated to land in North Charleston on Monday — though no public tours will be done.

However, in small conciliation to that, Boeing has released photos showing off the interior of the 787; see them here and just below.
