Captain Mike Carriker, chief pilot for the 787 program, brought ZA001, the first 787 Dreamliner, into Le Bourget Air Field on Tuesday in support of the Boeing display at the Paris Air Show.

LE BOURGET, France — Boeing is showcasing it 787 Wednesday at the Paris Air Show.

After a three-year delay the first new 787 is expected to be delivered in August or September to All Nippon Airways.

The Japanese airline has 55 of the fuel-efficient widebodies on order.

Boeing also announced an agreement Wednesday with Russia's UTair Aviation for 40 737s. If the order goes through it would be worth about $3.2 billion at list prices.
