747LCF Arrives In NGO! (Pics) 787 Deliveries Begin

The 787 is nearing the final stage in her early development. This evening the 747LCF arrived in Nagoya to pick up the first fuselage and wing sections for transport to the US. Tomorrow she will be loaded and Friday she'll depart for South Carolina to pick up two other components before being flown to Everett, WA to begin prototype assembly.

Despite terrible wind chill and a lengthy arrival delay, I greeted the LCF on Centrair's skydeck along with several hundred other photographers and employees of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Aisin-Seiki, and numerous other industrial heavyweights in Nagoya contributing to Boeing's newest commercial product.

Apologies for the awful night shots...we were expecting arrival around an hour before sunset and I didn't bring my tripod.

3:30 pm...the pros are already setting up

the specialized loader is in position (the road Mitsubishi built to carry her wings from the delivery barge to the apron can be seen in the background)

As dusk settles, workers gather to greet the LCF

Boeing 876 has yet to arrive one hour past the scheduled arrival time

Finally, at 5:45 local, she touches down smoothly on runway 36 and taxies in

A flurry of activity begins at Spot 403

Nagoya looks forward to seeing the LCF much more often after tonight

No, unfortunately can't take two days off just for the LCF  hissyfit 

I'm going back Friday for her departure. There will be many chances to catch her being loaded around here though.

Aaron You are the Man!

Wish I could have been there. I was in Nagoya this morning but had to go home. Man I wish I could take work off tomorrow....no classes but lots of work.

I bet some of the other Japanese Aviation nuts in the area will be overtaking the skydeck and Parking lot 3 over the next few days.



Yes...I am not a KIX fan. Let's Japanese Aviation!

Thanks for the great pics Aaron! I'm not ssure if you'll be getting any pics of the loading. I would think that they would load the sections dueing the middle of the night so the LCF can turn around and leave NAgoya in the morningtime. I think it'll go to Charleston and drop off the barrel and wing box but I'm not sure if it'll go direct to Italy to pic up the fuselage barrels produced there and then back to Charleston or if those barrels are not yet ready it might just fly back to Seattle from Charleston.

I think the other fuselage sections you're talking about are made in Italy. The Dreamlifter will fly them from Italy to Charleston to be joined with the fuselage section and the center wing box produced in Japan. That entire assembly is then flown by the Dreamlifter to Everett. Vought is producing the rear fuselage section also in Charleston but that won't be joined to the main fuselage section until that part is flown to Everett.

I hope we get to see pics. Maybe some of the 'pro' pictures will turn up on the web too. Thanks to all of you taking time off to get some pics for us.

It's a shame the ship is in the 'pickle' color scheme. So this must be the 2nd LCF. Did the ship ever travel to Seattle, or did it hop from China to Japan directly?



Inspiration, move me brightly!

Pro pictures will undoubtedly turn up but it would be rare for Japanese photographers to post their materials on a.net. As soon as there's information about a possible departure time, I'll begin planning for Friday.

The LCF flew from PAE to NGO today. It was never in China either - the structural conversion work was done in Taipei.

Nope it went from Boeing Field (BFI) to NGO. It's supposed to go to Charleston after being loaded. I'm not sure where it goes after that.

Minor point, it actually flew from BFI to NGO.

Japan has a huge aviation community and there are multiple photoblogs and BBS dealing with airliners. A.net is known here but it doesn't have a large following mainly due to language barrier and the Japanese community's self-supporting photo and information networks.

There will be NO prototype for the 787 just like the 777. I know that word seems to get used loosely but all the aircraft that will be used in testing WILL be delivered to customers. Technically the one they break is not a complete aircraft anyways, and is not prototype but built to exact specs.

She will be painted here at PAE once the 2nd LCF comes online and can do the trips for it.

This is correct, in fact it was partly painted(engines, tail areas) before they started rebuilding it.

If there is something ready in Italy that needs to come to Charleston, SC it will be heading there, if not i'm sure they will be bringing her home.

The parts are scheduled to be delivered ON the 12th to CHS. Time will only be known once the flight plan is filed.

Watch for Boeing flight 876 (BOE876) on like Flightaware.com That is the aircraft.

Since its not certified yet... every second its got the engines powered up will be logged into the system and be used as proof to the FAA as certification.  Smile
