Word in from the Boeing Company that a 787 with a special livery that is a decal as opposed to paint will be on display next week at the Future of Flight. Here’s more:

In August 2019, the 787 Dreamliner program rolled out a special pink and purple design on the largest decal ever on a composite aircraft. The full-body decal was recently tested and certified, enabling airline customers in the future to take advantage of new creative designs and graphics with the same durability as paint. The decal was inspired by the Employees Community Fund (ECF) of Boeing.

Since 1948, ECF has funded approximately $1 billion to local communities across the United States. The ECF has 20 chapters across Boeing, giving employees an opportunity to make a difference where they live and work. Each chapter is managed by local employees who make grants based on the needs of their communities.

In Puget Sound alone, employees donated $5.9 million to 81 nonprofit organizations in 2018.The special 787 Dreamliner design celebrates the commitment and generosity of Boeing employees in their local communities.

The airplane will be on display at Boeing Future of Flight in Everett for the public to take advantage of paid external walk around tours September 16-18 and 20-22.
