October 24 - Aircraft manufacturer Boeing joined with Ethiopian Airlines and Seattle Anesthesia Outreach to deliver 9 tonnes of medical supplies to Ethiopia's largest hospital, using the delivery flight of Ethiopian's third B787 Dreamliner to carry the go

The occasion marked the first time a Dreamliner has been used as part of Boeing's Humanitarian Delivery Flights programme, which utilises the empty cargo space of the aircraft to transport humanitarian aid free of charge.

Liz Warman, director of Boeing Global Corporate Citizenship for the Northwest region, noted: "Our two companies have a long history together not only buying and selling airplanes, but also in leveraging our resources to help those in need."
