A new Dreamliner aircraft which will be used for long-haul flights out of Stansted Airport has touched down there for the first time.

The Essex airport is about to start flights to Orlando and Cancun using the new state of the art 787 Boeing plane.

Operated by Thomson Airways it's another new addition to the expanding airport and can fly further without stopping - at around 8,000 miles.

"I don't think anyone can be as excited as a pilot picking up a brand new aeroplane which is a world class aeroplane.

This is the epitome of aviation at the moment. The Boeing 787 is in a class of its own.

This is a world leading composite designed aeroplane that flies higher and faster - this is it, it doesn't get much better than this."

– Stuart Gruber, Head of flight operations, Thomson Airways
