Hi VCV. Not wishing to pour water on your bonfire flames here as it's clear the 777X flight test program is very exciting for you, but just looking over the past week's worth of posts it's mostly nothing but flightaware alert links. Whilst the notifications of the upcoming first flights are newswort...Jump to post
-Qatar already has 7 789s stored at VCV that they have contractually taken delivery of but not placed into service (originally delayed due to seat delays involving their new business class). These 787s are joining QR’s already stored frames A7-BHA-G are all parked at Doha. A7-BHH/I are the only one...Jump to post
That can happen and i'm glad they found and fix(ed) it before something bad might have happened. Was the same case as the final 737-800 for KLM, took a while to fix the issues but eventually KLM got the last 738 ever produced and it's flying happily around Europe now. "Took a while to fix the ...Jump to post

N402CC is 7494, the former VT-JXM which was last known in all white with Jet Aw rudder.Jump to post
Etihad A6-BMI (N8572C sticker) B78X EcoDemonstrator flew across to BFI from CHS yesterday, arriving BFI at half five.
Does anybody know the line number for A6-EZQ? 1642 if I'm not mistaken Has there been a reallocation then as my parchment shows a different reg for that ln? Jumping back to this. The frame pictured is indeed believed to be 1642 based on its roll out date, however all systems still show the reg as A...Jump to post
1223 is the next one Peter.Jump to post
Nice pics Woody thanks. One of the GECAS frames at BFI is in the process of being re-rgd N402CC and probably wearing it. I'm guessing it's one of the former Jet Aw frames. It's in C14 which is the 4th stall up from the southern end. Not sure if the FedEx 727 is still there on the GA side but the gat...Jump to post

Is it just me being blind or have they removed all the delivery date info?

There isn't much space at BFI right now as it's musical chairs pulling them out of Plant 2 for rework and moving completed ones back across. They're mostly coming to RNT from storage for rework for that reason as once they're complete, they fly back out to storage and free up a space for the next on...Jump to post

Delivered on 11 March already to USAF KC-46A Tanker Program, final delivery today to GSB, after sweeping up loose nuts & bolts, rivets, sweet wrappers, spare tools/wrenches etc. FY16 is correct.
024 and 049 will be the next ones to go followed by 051 and 052, not necessarily in that order.
Nice :cheerful: . Do you have an alternative photo of 7783 in the D stalls? The sticker number is blocked by the wing. Looking at my RAW files, I don't have a shot that shows the sticker clearly. That's unfortunate. It is useful to note them as some of them are flying using the hex code derived fro...Jump to post

Looks like July was a bad month for deliveries from my observations. Only 4 deliveries that I can see : 2x 787s (AF,TK), 1x 777F (BOX) and 1x 767 (FX). No 737 types. Worst on record? I guess we'll see when the numbers are released mid month. Actually may be 3x 787s as UA N24980 sneaked out a few hou...Jump to post

It's a fake flight plan. Probably for training but accidentally submitted to the live system. It happens.Jump to post
Nice pics woody thanks for sharing. Nothing confirmed yet but that white tail is possibly 7899 for Jackson Square Ireland (lessor).
7885 is another possibility as that is a cancelled order too. Any sightings of that one?
Can someone advise where the BA 777’s are at? BA may even consider not to accept these four operational leased 777-300ER aircraft from Novus , after a comparison between the amount of penalty payment and the actual lease rate over X years.

Right, but it had to have been allocated to an airline ahead of time. Very rare we would see a lessor frame roll out without an intended customer.
The Volga-Dnepr VQ-BIO > N784TD will become N624UP under UPS' ownership and the transaction is confirmed. Msn and tab will remain unchanged (hope that helps your records, Peter).

Thanks RobK, but according to the Lufthansa Group Fleet website, 1675 will be a 777-9 D-ABTD.

These ones not already at BFI are being ferried to RNT for their rework. It takes around 1 month to complete. The ones at BFI are having it done there.Jump to post
Volga-Dnepr lost their legal battle against Boeing for the 747-8F and three 777F so that implies they were the "Customer of Record" and if DAE was involved, it would have been after Volga-Dnepr took delivery. https://theloadstar.com/volga-dnepr-loses-legal-battle-with-boeing-over-freighte...Jump to post

As mentioned by RobK on the Boeing 777 Production/Delivery Thread - 2020, the first 777-9 for Qatar Airways, A7-BKA (LN1656), will roll out of the factory soon.

TC957, all I can say at this time is that Lufthansa report doesn't match my data. It's perhaps worth mentioning that the 777 firing order is seeing reshuffles nearly every month in the future allocations. Some 777Fs have recently changed. I will recheck later this month.
