Boeing's 787: Engineering a quieter airplane
It has long been rumored that Boeing's new 787 Dreamliner will be the quietest commercial jumbo jet in its class. Take a look at the back of select engine nacelles on the airframe and you can see an obvious difference. That egg crate design is in place for improved acoustic performance, which means a better experience for not only passengers but the people living near airports and flight paths.
Boeing just published a video showing some of the other improvements and the testing that they're working on. Take a look at the show above.
