Boeing 787 Dreamliner Cockpit Virtual Tour [PHOTOS]

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner Airplanes – widely acknowledged as the most technologically advanced airplanes ever made – are now officially in service. The first bunch of passengers to fly in this amazing plane flew on a special “All Nippon Airways” flight from Tokyo to Hong Kong today (Wednesday, July 11th 2012) with several people paying 1000s of dollars just to be on the 787 Dreamliner’s “first flight”.

Wired magazine’s Jason Paur got a 1st class tour of the cockpit of these marvelous beauties, so here’s a nice photo tour.
