|Quoting LY777 (Reply 2):|
so, they say nothing new in reality...
|Quoting Stitch (Reply 16):|
Q (Joe Campbell from Leehman Brothers) - What can we expect between EIS and the 109th delivery?
A (Scott) - ZA001 through ZA006 will be in the air by Q3. ZA007 is due in March.
|Quoting Brendows (Reply 20):|
It was interesting to listen to the program update, they sound pretty confident when it comes to the program partners and that they can achieve the goal of 109 planes by the end of 2009. And Pat's answer to the question about the current weight of the 787 was pretty amusing
|Quoting Stitch (Reply 26):|
Q - "How much weight do you need to remove?"
A - "A bit more."
|Quoting NYC777 (Reply 28):|
I think they said that LN 7 will be the first one where it will be at the required weight.
|Quoting Stitch (Reply 37):|
I know both will accept the FAA certificate, but they may have additional constraints on it (as EASA did for the 777 ETOPS and the JAA will for the 787)
|Quoting Teme82 (Reply 39):|
Yeah and I think that can cause some problems for 787 program.
|Quoting CP744 (Reply 44):|
Availability of fasteners still are an issue. I obviously don't understand the entire dynamics behind this issue. Is it the lack of raw material or the suppliers were not expecting to have to produce as many as needed? Anyone?
|Quoting Sh0rtybr0wn (Reply 45):|
Which one of those an the factory floor is for static testing, and which one of thoses 787s will fly?
|Quoting Beech19 (Reply 50):|
Quoting NYC777 (Reply 47):
The one on the left is the first flying test aircraft. The one in the middle is the static test aircraft and the one on the right is fatigue test aircraft.
Ooops NYC... the other left, and right.
