Quoting Scouseflyer (Reply 15): 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!
No one is keeping the rollout date vague. The person who said this I'm sure was kidding.
Quoting Sphealey (Reply 4): Then they can have a 2nd rollout in Europe on 7 August 2007.
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?

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

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.
