Boeing's 787 Dreamliner is officially now in service on US domestic routes, following its first international landing on American soil back in April. The state-of-the-art aircraft landed at Chicago's O'Hare airport on Sunday morning after a flight from Houston operated by United Airlines. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the plane landed almost 15 minutes ahead of schedule to an ovation from the passengers and crew.

United has ordered 50 Dreamliners, of which two have been shipped so far; they will initially run on routes that also take in Cleveland, Denver, Los Angeles, Newark, San Francisco, and Washington. If you're interested in seeing the aircraft's interior but aren't planning on taking a flight any time soon, United has launched a virtual tour on its website that gives you a better look at features such as the electronically dimmable windows.
