Boeing stands ready to support our health care professionals on the front lines of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Dreamlifter, one of the largest cargo transport airplanes in the world, is ready to carry critical shipments and supplies.
Boeing built the Dreamlifter to help ferry 787 parts from around the world to assembly lines in the United States. The aircraft itself is a modified version of Boeing’s 747.
Moreover, Boeing has been donating supplies to support these efforts. This includes tens of thousands of masks, gloves, and medical equipment to hospitals. The manufacturer is pledging engineering, manufacturing, and logistics expertise to fight against the virus. “Additive manufacturing machines in our factories will utilize 3D printing capabilities to produce thousands of much needed face shields per week,” said Jerry Varghese, vice president, global brand marketing at Boeing.
