THE flight deck of Boeing's new dream machine looks like a real-life version of the USS Enterprise from Star Trek.

The first glimpse offered by the US aircraft maker yesterday revealed a dashboard crammed with full-colour LCD displays coupled to other hi-tech digital features.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which is due to enter service with airlines around the world in 2008, is very much a dream toy for pilots.

Hell yeah! i mean, just the technological advancements and instruments from the A380 and the rest of our current fleet(s) is remarkable. 2008 seems so soon though. All that by then, that would make it even more impressive.

The way you guys were talking I thought there were pictures. :( Thanks guys. If I hadn't read your posts before the article I could have come out of this without disappointment.... here goes another victim of too high expectations.

On the upside the idea is very cool.
