Boeing is getting ready to put the extended version of its Dreamliner jet into service, and it created a special paint job for the occasion.

The 787-9 will fit more passengers and offer more range than the 787-8 that's already in service. The first -9 to enter commercial service is going to Air New Zealand, and it looks stunning in an all-black livery.

Boeing is still testing the -9, and the New Zealand plane is expected to start commercial flights later this year on the Auckland-Perth route. It is the first of 10 787-9s the airline has ordered.

The original 787-8 Dreamliner seats 201-250 passengers and offers a range of 7,650 to 8,200 nautical miles. The 787-9 is 20 feet longer, has room for 40 more passengers, and can fly an extra 300 miles without refueling.

The first one looks awesome.
