Quoting Brons2 (Reply 3):
How much farther behind is #3?

Much, relatively. #4 is said to be moved ahead of #3 as it's more important to the early stages of the flight testing. It's not known if #3 will fly ahead of #5, from what I understand.

Probably an N- registration since this test airframe will not ever be delivered to ANA.

Strangely, that one picture changes everything. I'd got used to seeing what purported to be a real 787 in Boeing's colours but it never flew or did very much.

But this... It's a real airliner in the colours of a real airline.

This, more than any Boeing press release, suddenly tells me that the programme is back on track. Good news!

I just came to town this afternoon and went over to Paine Field to check out the flight line. I was expecting to see frame #1, but had the pleasant surprise of seeing frame #2 on the line also, ANA's first, with reg N787EX.

Here are a couple of shots that my friend took with a cell phone camera. (I was stupid and left my camera at home.) Sorry about the quality.





Btw, the AeroLogic 777-200LRF took off, on what I presume was her delivery flight, right as we were taking these shots of the 787's, and did a couple of nice farewell wing waves! It was a sweet showcase of Boeing's greatest.


I can't seem to get the images from my profile to imbed in this post, so here are the links:

I am surprised that NH did not take the opportunity to update their livery , the current one is more than 25 years old and the 787 would seem to offer a great opportunity for a revamp

Not sure why it's in ANA colors since it doesn't look like any of the six will go to airlines. I'd assume ANA must have been part of the decision. Maybe they liked the idea of one of the test planes flying their colors, and Boeing didn't mind since it would probably get repainted after testing in any case.

I love the wings on the plane. The rest of it looks pretty ordinary, (esp on the cell phone pics). Of course under the skin, it is far from ordinary. Soon to the skys please, soon.

It's probably been stated here already, but what is the anticipated fate of the first six airplanes? Is there any chance any of them will be converted to freighters, even on a trial basis?

It looks like they'll probably be sold as BBJs. Their's speculation on Boeing keeping 001 to play with.
