How much do you know about Boeing’s latest jet, the super-efficient 787 Dreamliner, which is making the tongues wag of airplane nerds, and which is poised to be the biggest competition to Airbus’s A380 (which ditches fuel efficiency for in-flight showers and a boozy cocktail lounge)?

The Chicago Tribune has this handy quiz highlighting some of the more quirky aspects about the 787, like how the windows dim via electric currents shot through a gel sandwiched between two glass panes to change the plane’s windows à la Blade Runner, or the fact that the designation of 787 is simply the result of being the next in line for models number (767, 777, 787).
