787 Dreamliner

Here is a sensational video of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner Paris Airshow rehearsal, this aircraft is powered by the General Electric GEnx-1b. 
The GEnx offers 15 percent better fuel burn than the CF-6 it was designed to replace, Key technologies that make this happen are the new high pressure compressor, the twin annular pre swirl combustor and the use of lightweight  and durable composite materiel throughout. The GEnx is the fist jet engine to have both front fan case and fan blades made of composite material. The GEnx is the quietest engine that we have produced.

Shameless plug, I'm in charge of the team that produces the large spool the core of the engine
