According to what I read last night,1-16, the airplane will roll out. Taxi test will be later. This is an unveiling.
Also from what I read, the airplane is still a little overweight. It was as much as 8000 lbs over but now its down to 3000 lbs. Hopefully for Airbus, this thing will fly but all bets are off until the weight thing is fixed.
If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.

Airbus admitted the plane was overweight from their original specs. Read the news guy and don't kill the messenger, ok?
That's not the part I thought you were joking about. It was the part where you said it 'won't fly'. I know the plane is still slightly overweight (about 1 ton). But what is it that makes you think it 'won't fly'?
