To update the QR situation from the previous thread : viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1437921&start=250#p22556235

A7-BHH fully painted QR.
A7-BHI fully painted QR.
A7-BHJ painted white base coat fuselage/engines with QR tail.
A7-BHK ditto.
A7-BHL ditto.
A7-BHM ditto.

Could be that U-turn doesn't want the paint fading while in storage and they are due to go back to PDX for fully painting when he's ready to take delivery, or maybe they are ntu. It's interesting that the lastest AMX 787 got the same treatment at PDX just a few days ago and went to VCV all white, sans tail. Unlike QR, AMX doesn't strike me as being an airline that would be bothered about such things so I wonder if Avolon Aerospace are looking for a new customer to take this frame? Plus for what it's worth, no Mexican hex has been assigned to the frame either.

VCV now up to 37 brand new 787s in storage.

I see that 787-8 N507BJ sneaked out of Springfield in early December for Waco TX. Waco has a paint facility there and was where all the Ministry of Finance frames got painted so I wonder if it's having a new paint job? It already got a corporate paint scheme at San Bernadino in autumn 2018. I note that its interior outfitting was completed in 2019 and was then offered for sale. Current & future owner unknown and I don't believe that the very old info about Korean Air VIP is valid. This was the frame which suffered a nose wheel collapse at Grant County.

Whilst on the subject of corporate 787 BBJs, I also note that the Kalair VP-BDA was never completed (or even started?) and has been for sale with an empty interior since January 2018. It's been at Basel since delivery.

N947BA 787-8 over at Victorville has been for sale via Comlux for many years with a "big price reduction" announced mid 2020, but still no interest it seems. It has a 18/244 business/economy interior apparently.

Any of the PAE crowd see if JA927A came back from PDX fully painted or just a white blow-over like the AMX and QTRs have been getting there?

Boeing 787 Issues ‘Mushroom’ With No Fix In View, Air Lease Says - https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles ... lease-says

There’s just greater and greater levels of inspections going on,” Plueger, who heads the largest publicly traded U.S. aircraft lessor, said on an earnings call Monday. “As yet today, it’s difficult to see a definitive fix that is agreeable by the aviation authorities and all going forward.”


Some of the wide-body jets due to be delivered to Air Lease have been delayed more than 12 months, giving the Los Angeles-based company and its customers the right to bolt from their original contracts, Plueger said.


Any updates on 787? Air Lease doesn't seem optimistic.

Boeing CEO said last month that deliveries should resume in March, possibly late Feb.

ALC has already cancelled 19 B737-8 MAX last year (5 and in Nov 14) and additional an option for 45 B737-8 MAX got expired, so is also gone. OK, they have said this January that possibly few (but not all) of the cancelled MAX orders will be renewed, when the deliveries will restart.

If ALC and others will now have the additional chance to cancel some of the B787 orders as delayed for more than one year....

Seems Boeing is hard working to produce as many whitetails as possible. And we shall not forget, again and again, it is Boeings fault.

A tweet I found to be interesting from @LeehamNews:

On SpiritAero earnings call, leadership says Boeing not going to return to rate 14 on 787, goal is around 7/mo.

Ref: https://twitter.com/LeehamNews/status/1 ... 4722869250

Welcome to the brave new world!
Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world
The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings
The heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own

Deeper analysis here.

Boeing is asking suppliers to do a deep engineering analysis into non-conformities and rectify any issues they find at least spriit aerospace says so

I think this was pretty much known when Boeing announced the 787 was going CHS only. Not sure what max rate that site is capable of but it is not rate 14, and Boeing obviously wouldn’t shut down PAE assembly just to reopen it a few months later.

Considering the fact that the 14 rate was with both Everett and CHS, it's not that surprising.

The last Everett 787 roll-out !

The last Everett built 787, line 1095 for ANA, was moved out of the factory at 10 PM Local Time at Feb 26th 2021.
(seen in the back is line number 1057 for JAL, back in the factory for rework)

I have a question, with all 787's being produced at Charleston, would Boeing still delivery some from Everett by flying them CHS-PAE before ferrying them to their new home base? Or would all new deliveries be conducted from Charleston?
