Boeing brings 'Dream' to Chicago

For the first time, Boeing's brand new aircraft, the 787 Dreamliner, has landed in the aerospace giant's hometown.

The plane made a quick stop at O'Hare International Airport Wednesday morning to pick-up several passengers. The airplane, which flies with the call sign ZA003, is in the middle of what Boeing dubs its worldwide "Dream Tour." The plane was in Chicago for just over an hour before heading for Mexico City.

Chicago-based United Airlines is scheduled to be the first US carrier to fly the 787 later this year.
