When I was at CHS in the end of July there were three in full colors and the one in partial colors, that had the engine damage. I doubt it was the engine damage aircraft.

This was a plane that was built at Everett and then ferried to SC due to a lack of space in Washington. The aircraft that had the bum engine has yet to make its first flight. There are still about 5 787s in Everett that have to go through change incorporation.
That which does not kill me makes me stronger.

Could this finally be the end of the AI / Boeing disputes? I wonder if AI will ransom the delivery pilots back to Boeing when it lands

Isn't it odd that it shows going to FRA and arriving at 4:29am? I thought FRA has a curfew?

This is probably a stupid question, but do we actually kow which airframe this is being delivered? The chart shows both VT-AND and VT-ANI ready for delivery.

If you look closely, there is one that is statused as delivered. This website is usually very up to date.
