What is the proximity of the Boeing facilities to the commercial terminal? I do hope to see one of the majestic new birds.
The Boeing plant is right next to the terminal in CHS
. If you're driving out of the terminal, you'll see the facility very clearly. You'll probably also see one of the DreamLifters on the ramp as well. If you go to the cell phone waiting area, it is literally right next to the assembly building and you can see anything that is taxiing to/from the Boeing ramp.
As for the 787s... when I was there a couple weeks ago, the only one I saw was an AI
bird that was undergoing ramp completion tasks. The outdoor ramp for the 787's is on the opposite side of the assembly building from the terminal, so unless you drive around to the other side of of the assembly building, you probably won't see anything. Even then, there's a lof of blast fencing that surrounds the ramp area, but you can still see the planes on the ramp.
I wouldn't count on any photo opportunities, though. Security is pretty tight and the airport police are everywhere.
