Good luck to Boeing and ANA in the countdown to the first commercial flight!

Wow .. this is just fantastic.
Somehow I wasn't sure this day would come (EIS), but not it's almost here.

Has this aircraft actually been delivered (handed over) to ANA yet, or is it still in the hands of Boeing?

Still Boeing. The 787 doesn't have type certification yet. This visit is the "service ready operational validation":

How did these people ever get so close to the aircraft? Must be airport workers!

What I understand from various post it's one of those things which follows the name.
Fly to various airports, ensure that parking spots properly marked, tugs functional, ground crew know how to open doors, load / unload a/c, essentially a dummy walk thru for various operational personnel and "things" before actual introduction into service. Any problems discovered has roughly a month or two to be resolved on either end, airport or a/c.

In addition to what par13del noted, they'll also conduct fit checks with maintenance stands and jacks within the hangar.

I should've known! Very similar to the A380 introduction into service... In SYD there was a dummy A380 model utilized to train the ground staff on the aero bridge docking...

Also they will have a month or two to see how much if any ramp rash she may suffer.

Of course all these trials are not in revenue service and presumably are being done by senior personnel who are checking everything twice as they go along.

So, lets hope it's a trouble-free trial period!



Inspiration, move me brightly!

The article indicates that the 787 will return to Seattle on Saturday, July 9th, but ANA's own SROV page says that there will be an additional visit to Nagoya's Chubu Airport on July 10th, which I've seen confirmed elsewhere.

The Chunichi Dragons are in town next weekend, so looks like Nagoya is the place to be!

Hmm, i agree if it would be longer, now it looks to stubby. But great to see it finally around anyway.

All I have to say is "It's about time..." hopefully the rest of the certification process goes on without any more glitches and Boeing can go back to making a decision on the 737 or 797.

All the best to the 787 and ANA. I am sure they will enjoy them for a long time to come.

Any bets on EIS yet?

It truly is an attractive aircraft. The nose has that Comet/Caravelle feel that it's exactly the way a nose should look. Can't wait to see them in service.

Great news, glad to see the 787 that much closer to service.

Boeing discovered with the 787 what Airbus discovered with the A380, when you push the envelope there's bound to be problems moving it from concept to reality. A 3+ year delay. I'm sure many of us didn't think it would take this long.

Airbus has done a good job with the A380 and seems the type is doing well in airline service as more and more airlines start to operate it. I'm confident the 787 will recover as well.

Congratulations to both Boeing and ANA.

Awesome to see the type nearing EIS. Any ideas on when the first (CO I assume) US delivery will be?

UA will be the first US operator (though the frames were ordered by CO prior to the merger). Parts for that airframe will enter the tooling jig this month at CHS. So I'm going to guess Q1 2012?

Looks like an 318 in that movie

27 tdscanuck : Could be the dateline...I think if they leave on the 10th at the right time they may arrive in Seattle on the 9th. Tom.
28 Post contains images MadameConcorde : Japan domestic as per the ANA CEO. My take for the true inaugural will be Haneda to Itami, possibly Haneda-KIX Haneda/Narita to Shanghai for the firs
29 IndianicWorld : Great to see it finally arrive. It is a fairly plain looking final product though, when considering some of the past designs that were shown.
30 carpethead : Apparently, HND-Okayama or HND-HIJ, hinted by ANA CEO. Hence, the 787 is visiting both airports. HND-ITM service on a 787 is too small for that market
