Word is that Boeing might have two 787 at the unveiling ceremony.

Paris would be a nice location -- central to most of the western European countries. Failing that, Italy where a good chunk of the 787 is built would be a good place.

How would they get it to Europe to roll it out as it is expected to fly "at the end of August" - nice one keeping the dates vague then it's harder to be pilloried for missing your targets!

If it is, then I should be able to watch it, since the 8th is a Sunday which hopefully means no work, but I don't have the official calendar yet, but  crossfingers .

I also can't wait to see it at Farnborough in 2008.

No one is keeping the rollout date vague. The person who said this I'm sure was kidding.

In the US, our date July 8, 2007 is 7/08/07 and in Europe it's not written this way until August 7 or 07/08/07 thus creating two rollout dates with the date 7/8/07. Don't worry if Boeing says it will rollout on 7/8/07 it will be July 8. It surely wouldn't be much of a "rollout" in Europe after it's already been rolled out and flown would it?

Too bad it isn't flying until August. If it were it could the cap to Ultimate Boeing Flying Challenge where you fly a real flight operated on the corresponding Boeing aircraft to the day in July.

Will be tough, but we will see what we can do.

Rollout events are a tough gig. Thankfully the light should be good...if the event ends at 4:30 then we should be shooting around 5:30, of course early July the weather can be bad here in Seattle, but we will have our fingers crossed.

I am most looking forward to hoisting a few pints with Guy Norris  Wink

Hopefully there won't be any problems when Boeing starts assembly, otherwise this might not only delay the roll out date but service entry. From the large number of orders, the 787 is an excellent product that customers want and may be willing to be more flexible than with the A380 if engineering problems arrise between now and 2008.

Even a delay won't stop the rollout.

I have seen planes with no interior presented at rollout events. It happens  Wink
