For the first time ever, there's a Dreamliner in the fleet of a U.S. airline.

That became official over the weekend, when United Airlines officially took ownership of its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner. United had previously shown off the jet during a public unveiling last month, but the aircraft was officially handed over to the airline until Saturday.
