Australia and New Zealand are among the stops on the the final leg of the 787’s Dream Tour, which the Boeing Co. announced Friday.

Boeing said that more than 59,000 guests have visited the the refurbished flight test Dreamliner, known as ZA003, on the first six sections of the Dream Tour. And the company estimates another 6,000 will see the 787 during the final five stops that make up the last part of the tour.
