Just wondering if anyone has any news on when Boeing will get #5 and #6 in the air. I know that they are going to be the only ones with the GEn-X engines; just wondering what the progress is.

ZA005 & ZA006
Both General Electric GEnx-1B-powered 787 flight test aircraft remain parked inside Building 40-24 - future site of the 787 surge line - being prepared for their respective first flights expected in April or May. ZA005 carried out nacelle strut drain testing around March 7th and the aircraft is now expected to move out for a final aqueous wash of the fuel tanks. ZA006's engines have arrived on the factory floor for fitting.
