Chicago-based Boeing says its new 787 is beginning the final phase of flight testing.

The plane should be ready for delivery in August or September.

The Boeing 787 is capable of carrying nearly 300 passengers, and has a flight range of 8,000 miles.

The jet received rave reviews from airline industry leaders this past week at an air show in Paris.
