Here is what I am assuming is another test flight: https://www.flightradar24.com/BOE273/21cfe2a4 ARA - MWH does Boeing have any kind of facilities in Louisiana?

However much you think the drop in value is down to the crashes or not I doubt it's stopped falling And if these planes aren't back in the air for months who knows where it might fall to? What about the lack of orders and deposits and payments for planes whilst these planes are grounded? Surely it'...Jump to post
Well on my morning drive to work today it looks like the united 78J is done. It was parked on the ramp at Meacham but sadly it seems like it is painted in the current livery. Only caught a glimpse as I was driving by it appears to be the current livery - no new livery I'm afraid. :cry2: You have on...Jump to post
Hmmmmm drove by Meacham Airport on Ft Worth last week and felt a disturbance in the Force as I looked for any signs of the UA 78J on property :) I drive by Meacham every day on my way to and from work and I'm hoping to get a glimpse of that United beauty as well! :cheerful: Well on my morning drive...Jump to post
It usually takes a week. LN828 is in the normal livery The one in FTW (LN 548) will take a longer time to do as it was a Boeing test plane used in certification of the 787-10. Luckily it was just the standard white color with a small Boeing logo on the side. I'm not sure if they are removing all of...Jump to post

How is the fix really a fix? If MCAS is switched off automatically, we have an aircraft without MCAS. Apparently MCAS is good for something in the first place, otherwise it would not be there. So the aircraft will then be operating at the brink of a stall and the pilots need to keep it in the air? ...Jump to post

this kind of post just makes it clear how out of touch with reality people on a.net are.

Please remember there is a separate thread to discuss the 737 Max groundings.
We should be discussing the specifics of the incident in this thread.

If the MAX is such a piece, why are they not all falling out of the sky? Two accidents in a year. We all just need to calm down and wait for the report before automatically blaming the MAX. Seb, this is not a good way to think about accident statistics. It’s like saying “I didn’t get into a car wre...Jump to post

548 still has a white tail and is back on the flight line. The Star Alliance tail is a different plane. Well it doesn't help when we don't have eyes on the ground at CHS anymore.

Been browsing flyertalk. It's seems there's a UA 787-10 with a Star Alliance tail at CHS. One can assume this is LN548 seeing as LN731 is painted in the full livery: There's also another photo of the EVA Air 787-9: 548 still has a white tail and is back on the flight line.

Would this have an effect on 787 production since these aircraft were primarily designed and purposed for that role? If Boeing wants to ramp up the 787 how are they going to do that with Dreamlifters taking up time and slots for the 767. They won't sacrifice 787 production for the 767. More than li...Jump to post

Working on clearing out the backlog so Boeing can get cracking on the 787MAX? :-) I admittedly don't know that much about commercial aircraft assembly lines and re-tooling, but could they be accelerating so that they can eventually free-up some line space to create an MOM line in early-mid 2020s?

How is the second hand market for the 787 (if it exists). Guess you could say there is none as of yet as the only frame on offer (Crystal's BBJ) has yet to find a buyer. But then again, there is only one frame on offer since even the oldest delivery is still early in it's operational life with it's...Jump to post
