(CHARLESTON, S.C.) -- The first Boeing Dreamliner made in South Carolina has taken to the skies, according to ABC affiliate WCIV-TV.
The plane, which was manufactured at the North Charleston factory, took off around noon on Wednesday. The original departure time was scheduled for earlier in the morning, but had to be pushed back. Boeing employees were able to watch the Dreamliner take off on a big screen inside a hangar.
The Dreamliner was introduced at a ceremony last month, and will soon be headed to Air India. The North Charleston plant, which opened in June 2011, is expected to build four plans by the end of the year, according to the report.
