787 Production/Delivery Thread Part 36

Sun Nov 02, 2014 8:45 pm

Here is the link to the previous discussion:

787 Production/Delivery Thread Part 35 (by American 767 Oct 10 2014 in Civil Aviation)

Please post here to continue.

As everybody knows, the first AA787 is now completed and ready for delivery. But American won't put it on scheduled flights right away. In other words, passengers won't be flying on it right away.

The illustration (link in previous post) of the Scoot 787-9 in the air shows the yellow-white edges of the Scoot-swoops lining up perfectly with the wing's upswept profile. Quite a creative move to think about the wing position in flight and with a beautiful result, too. I'm starting to wonder if the 787-9 is going to be the prettiest large plane around.

Looks like the first delivery to Scoot is now not until mid January next year. It was pushed back to Jan. 15, 2015 though I don't know the reason.

Except nobody knows that because you skipped the whole flight test portion of the process. Delivery won't happen for weeks.

ZA003 will move across the street to its permanent home at the Museum of Flight sometime between now and Saturday.

I'll have to go visit, but it's still a bit sad that LN 2 and LN 3 couldn't be refurbished and put into service.

It looks like Boeing is close to having assembled (not delivered) 250 Dreamliners-

Lockheed only built 250TriStars during its entire run of a much longer time.

With all the problems Boeing is turning out the planes at an unheard of clip for a widebody.

Agreed. However 250th delivery looks like it won't be until February of next year.

I'm amazed...
195 MD-11s
250 L1011s
446 DC-10s (if 60 AirForce planes are counted)
583 767-300ER (pax) (+ other 767s)

I'm very curious to see if the rate increase in 2016 happens.   
2015 is for producing more 789s rather than more 787s overall.

Not a single test flight out of Everett in two working days. Boeing scheduled a flight for ZA567 (Royal Jordanian, LN 233) this afternoon but it didn't get airborne.

As much as I respect SQ, that use of the code just seems wrong. It will always be ATA in my mind. I miss the airline and I miss TZTristar500's insanely informative and entertaining posts about it.

Boeing is flying a test flight on ZA195 (JAL 787-8, LN 222). This looks to me like a redo of the B-1, which was fairly long but didn't appear to be completed.

That's what I figured - UA's done that in the past - taken a new bird over from PAE to SEA and used it for a revenue flight to where they intend to truly put in in service. Had to do a double-take as I looked out my office window and saw it before it vanished into the clouds.

I got a nice tour of the very first 777 they took (I believe the first delivered 777 to any airline) when they brought it to SEA for an employee and customer event prior to putting into service. Have a photo floating around somewhere with me leaning against the port-side engine. None of us had ever seen a jet engine that huge before.

The latest Boeing O&D shows that 4 previously unallocated AerCap 789s have now been allocated RR engines. Wonder who signed the lease with AerCap for those frames??? AerCap RR 789s had so far been allocated to LAN (6) and Thai (2).

2 pics of an ex-ANA JA804A bird at the EMC? looking pretty ready to me

Does anybody know what sort of rework the doors get (as they aren't painted)?
Thanks for any information.

With all the problems Boeing is turning out the planes at an unheard of clip for a widebody.

I thought the A330 was a widebody? They (I believe) have been knocking 'em out at the same - or greater rate.no?

A330s are being produced at a rate of 10 per month since April 2013.

I'll say. They pumped out 66 widebodys in the last quarter, including 31 787's. What I wish is that the testing would go as fast.

I think that might be line 11 in the paint hanger. I think 11 was previously ja804a.

I believe it was mentioned in another Civ Av thread that it would serve as the Korean "Air Force One".

I wonder if it will be painted in KE livery or a different livery. I would like to see a 787 in KE livery

I wonder if this is like how NH will "own" the new Japan AF1 but it will be painted in the current Japan AF1 livery.

Korean Air has 787's on order; they were an early customer, but have pushed deliveries back. I believe they have also switched their orders to the 787-9. Deliveries are not scheduled to begin until 2016.
