Boeing 787 Dreamliner Wins The 2011 Collier Trophy

Boeing Logo The Boeing 787 Dreamliner has won the 2011 Robert J. Collier Trophy, considered aerospace’s highest honor. As the National Aeronautic Association describes the award:

The Robert J. Collier Trophy is awarded annually “for the greatest achievement in aeronautics or astronautics in America, with respect to improving the performance, efficiency, and safety of air or space vehicles, the value of which has been thoroughly demonstrated by actual use during the preceding year.” The list of Collier winners represents a timeline of aviation, as many of the awardees mark major events in the history of flight.

Boeing has released two videos in celebration of the award. The first video examines the B787′s journey to winning the trophy. The second video is a look back at Boeing’s rich history of Collier Trophy awards, both within Boeing itself and in the ‘legacy companies’ they’ve acquired, such as McDonnell Douglas.
