Is this the last 789 for AF or does the white paint indicate that this frame will go to KLM ?


Its the last one for Air France, the aircraft hasnt been painted yet


I think it's been painted. All it needs is the Air France name on it.

It has not been painted. Every aircraft has a white fuselage before being painted.

Is the 787 fuselage the only one which has "naturally" white?
I saw other Boeing frames are blue, and Airbus airframes is...yellow?

Boeing uses a greenish protective coating on the aluminum (737, 747, 767, 777) fuselage and a white protective paint on the CFRP (787) fuselages.

Airbus uses either a mustard yellow or pale green protective covering/paint on their in-production airframes (all models).

I think the Vistara NTU frames were originally Hainan frames. Hainan comprises the bulk of the NTU aircraft, iirc 4 are not yet allocated. Those 4 were going to Vistara prior to them refusing to accept the frames as well. Biman picked up a couple that were for Hainan. I believe Avianca only had one 789 left on order and I think that has already been reallocated to another airline before being built. I'm out of the loop on the 787 due to all the covid mess, and life sort of hitting me like a freight train the last month or so, so this could all be entirely wrong.

interesting picture with the heat distortion, is that a military plane behind it? almost looks like a parallel take off which it isnt, but it does look odd and cool at the same time.

UA has taken delivery of five 789s in the last few months and they are all flying.... However two more, N24980/N29981, came off CHS FAL A few weeks ago and appears to be no activity with them at all... no pictures, no idea if they’re painted... this suggests UA has deferred delivery on these for a while.. There are six more -9 due this year..

Also one of the KLM‘s was supposed to fly yesterday (Wednesday) but nothing happened. We have two sitting around so it could have been either BKH or BKI. Nothing else scheduled for the week is what I have heard. A little disappointing given the fact that we have so many aircraft here.

Yeah CHS is half airport and half military. About 35 C17‘s is the number I have heard. Could be more could be less tho. Either way it’s a lot lol. Also that Westjet C-GMKS was delivered yesterday alongside G-ZBLB for BA.

Could it be that KLM employees are facing travel restrictions being EU citizens?
