Presuming that the twin certification programs go as planned, Boeing will be delivering a year's worth of production of both 787s and 747s.
I had seen 30 frames mentioned as the backlog of 787s that Boeing expects to have built. Does anyone have any idea how many 747 frames Boeing might be able to bill out by Dec. 31st?
Given that the test frames will have to be refurbished, they could not be delivered, but completed aircraft could be.
Previously Boeing built about one 747 a month, so something between 10-12 depending on construction rate?
40 - 50 Widebodies would make a fine Christmas present in the financials.
