Aviation enthusiasts are expected to head to Robin Hood Aiprort today to catch a glimpse of a major new airliner.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which has been dogged by delays, made its first appearance in Britain last week and is scheduled to begin flight testing at Doncaster this afternoon.

Thomson Airways has become the first UK airline to take delivery of Boeing’s Dreamliner.

The Dreamliner has taken nearly a decade to arrive and there has been plenty of turbulence along the way with safety issues, contract delays and construction problems all slowing the aircraft’s arrival.
