Done Deal... Boeing, ANA Complete Contractual Delivery of First 787 Dreamliner

Boeing Gets It ALL Done On First 787

Some one gets to deposit a whopping check this morning as Boeing and ANA have signed the formal documents completing the contractual delivery of the first 787 Dreamliner.

Celebrations to mark this historic milestone started today in Everett with a delivery ceremony followed by flyaway of the airplane on Tuesday. Today's signing comes after a series of flights, inspections and the transfer of funds.
 
"Now that the airplane is ready to deliver, the entire team is ready to celebrate," said Scott Fancher, vice president and general manager of the 787 program. "We look forward to honoring our launch customer ANA before they fly their first Dreamliner home to Japan."
 
Celebrations for Boeing employees began Monday at 0600 (Pacific time) outside the 787 factory in Everett with the static display of ZA002, one of the flight test airplanes painted in ANA's livery. ANA and Boeing executives, employees, partners and government officials gathered at 0900 for the delivery ceremony in the same location. Airplane 24, painted in ANA's special livery, will join the display during the ceremony. Flyaway of the airplane to Tokyo is scheduled Tuesday morning at 0635 (PT) from Paine Field.
 
"ANA has been a tremendous partner from day one," said Fancher. "Through the hard work and challenges, the Boeing team never lost focus on the commitments to our valued customer. We know ANA's customers will love this airplane."
