Are the -9s going to be assembled at CHS or in Washington?

Everett, at least at first. They use the surge line in 40-24 to avoid disruption to the 788 lines.

An exciting time in aviation. I cannot think of any time in history where three new aircraft will have their first flights in a four month period of time.

It is exciting. But if one counts military aircraft, that record has been broken before.

Ah WWII of course. I find 9 aircraft that were introduced in 1940 alone so I assume it had to have been broken before: B-24,P-51, A65 Zero, Yak-1, Mosquito, Helldiver, Page Halifax, Dauntless, and Beaufighter.

Lets add the word 'commercial' before the word 'aviation' in my quote.
