Its also for 'show' and not an actual working section 41. There has not been a single piece of the airplane completed yet.

Closest is the first barrell, that came off the 'drill and trim' machine at spirit in the last few days. That machine just cleans off all the excess material. Cuts out the door and windows and drills a number of location holes before full fledged drilling begins to attach inner supports, floors etc.

So still a ways away

Well, about three weeks.

The first fuselage section for the flight prototype will leave for PAE on January 2, 2007.

I like the way it is going to be more pointy then the rest of Boeing aircraft.
Can't wait until the complete aircraft is done. I want to see the inside and out and even fly on it. Unlike the A380. My gut is telling me to stay off that bird for a few years.

The test sections were all painted in order to test the painting process.

Actually technically its not a prototype, but a test aircraft which will be delivered to a customer in the long run.
It also is not being delivered to PAE on the 2nd but to Charleston, NC where Vought will assemble it will there larger peices and at that time it will make its way into my hands at PAE for assembly into the first 787. ::Evil laughter::

I guess we should get techinical about the parts and how they move eh!

Certain parts from Nagoya and Italy are flown to Charleston and mated with Vought parts, then put back on the LFC and flown to PAE for final assembly.

Some US domesticaly made parts will go by train to PAE.

There are some parts that will be flown directly from overseas subcontracts to PAE. I think some parts from Korea are going directly.

I have posted this before but always good to keep people up to date.
The LCF will be coming to NGO either at the end of this month or on the 1st of January. (I put my money on the end of the month) 787 parts from the three Japanese subcontractors will be loaded onto the LCF at spots 404, 405, and 406 on the International side of Chubu International. This area is clearly visible from the observation deck and Parking lot 3.

Is it just me, or is there less hype about the 787 than the 380. I remember so many pictures of the 380 before its first flight. Does boeing try to "hide" the assembly of this aircraft? I cant wait to see this roll out for the first time!

That's because the new extremes and standards that the 787 sets are more visible to the airlines than to the public. The public doesn't easily notice the operating or maintenance efficiency, and they won't realize that the 787 is responsible for new routes opening up. The A380 is mainly just bigger. The two aircraft will change the way people travel in different ways.

But also remember that Boeing realizes that Airbus is in hot water because of the way they hyped the Whale-Jet before it even was delivered to an airline. I think Boeing is smart by keeping the 787 project low-key until they actually have something to present to the public... They're doing the same thing with the 747-8i (F) project too.

It'll be soon enough though, but personally, I can't wait to see the finished product!

What strange comments. Either you two possess an unnatural fear/aversion to anything un-Boeing, or you know exceedingly little about commercial aviation. I suspect both. The certification process is no less stringent for any plane not manufactured 'at home', so why you draw the distinction is baffling.

I by no means agree with their sentiments, but I would imagine perhaps there reasoning is the wiring issues and the drive towards certification? Again, I don't agree with them, but that's the only reasoning I can even guess at.

Perhaps so, I wonder if they realise that pretty much every aircraft type they've flown on or seen has at some stage of its development suffered some form of glitch that required at least one redesign or other fix. It's the nature of building something as complex as an airplane.
Perhaps they should read your signature statement.

Have they already completed the wing stress testing for the 787? I was under the impression that they test with the wings fixed to the fuselage.

Yeah, I agree. What are you two talking about. Those are two odd comments that too many people here on a.net will agree to.
