I asked about the 4-4 at the end of the year and it was explained to me that the three -9's went exclusively down the surge line - so there would be less airplanes for PAE to deliver until early next year. Obviously this would be supplemented by planes from the EMC and possibly Charleston will actually delivery some.

Noticed it as I drove by KOA today. I couldn't get close enough to catch the reg # but it was the Boeing white body/blue tail with "787" on it. Parked way down at the end of airport with all the private jets. Just curious if anyone knew what it was doing there. (Did a search of the forum but came up with nothing.)

Quoting virginblue4 (Reply 7):
Any reason why it wasn't painted before delivery?
Im not sure if its actually painted on, it might just be a decal.
|Quoting KELPkid (Reply 12):|
Paint or decal, putting it on the vertical stab and rudder after production requires a rebalance...it seems it would be better to do this at the factory, as the rudder only needs to be balanced once
|Quoting kanban (Reply 13):|
if an equal sized decal is placed on each side, there is no need.. do the faces on both sides face forward? if so no difference.. if one faces aft, possibly a difference.

Yes, but that picture dates from September 9 while ZB002 was moved to the 40-26 building on September 10
|Quoting tortugamon (Reply 31):|
At least this one has engines.

Air India LN28 (VT-ANC) was moved from the paint hangar to the EMC tonight.

Our beloved ArkeFly will get three 787s, first delivery in May 2014.
|Quoting 7BOEING7 (Reply 24):|
Must have cancelled for today -- only shows the flight on the 7th (which was discussed in the previous thread).

|Quoting KarelXWB (Reply 32):|
Oddly enough, the rudder is not fully painted like the previous HU birds. Here's LN79 for example:
|Quoting WarpSpeed (Reply 43):|
Still a weird profile with a lot of flight time at or below 10,000 feet.
|Quoting 7BOEING7 (Reply 44):|
We'll have to wait for the next flight to get a better idea about whether these have been B or C flights.
