The large, drop-down bins of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner store up and away rather than cutting into overhead space like conventional stowage bins.

Boeing has chosen North Charleston, SC, as the location for its new 787 Dreamliner interiors fabrication facility. The new fabrication factory will be 10 mi from Boeing's 787 final assembly and delivery site in North Charleston. The close proximity of the two facilities will help improve the efficiency of the final assembly and delivery process in South Carolina. At the new facility, the Interiors Responsibility Center South Carolina team will manufacture 787 interior parts, including stowbins, closets, partitions, class dividers, floor-mounted stowbins used by flight attendants, overhead flight-crew rests, overhead flight-attendant crew rests, video-control stations, and attendant modules. Construction is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2010.
