Yesterday one of the largest planes I’ve ever seen in my life soared right over my head while I traveled to work after lunch. I’m still not sure exactly what it was, but it definitely appeared to be some type of cargo carrier. The excitement of the moment made my mind wander… how cool is it that innovators in our own backyards are producing some of the most leading-edge technology for the aerospace industry!
When I got back to work I learned that Vought Aircraft Industries in North Charleston completed their first composite section for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Boeing already has 550 orders for the Dreamliner, making it ‘one of the most successful launches of a new commercial aircraft in history.’
How awesome will it be one day to look up and see the Dreamliner in action… and a lot of it will be credited to the hundreds of ‘dreamers’ right here in the Lowcountry. Knowing that they are out there helping to build world-class planes makes me think about how I could reach my full potential in Charleston!
Today I really am inspired to do more!
