Would you get on a Boeing 787 today? Or would you remember the pictures of charred batteries and think twice?

That’s the problem. Years from now, the Dreamliner may be profitable, even legendary like the 737 model Boeing has been making for almost 50 years. Today, Boeing will clear another hurdle, assuming the first U.S. 787 flight after the grounding—a United Continental (UAL) route between Houston and Chicago.

(The flight, UAL 1, arrived at Chicago O’Hare International Airport at 1:13 p.m. on Monday.)

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
