Boeing Has 878 Orders For Delayed Airliner
While we're still months away from the first flight of Boeing's
787 Dreamliner, the planemaker announced Thursday the sixth and
final 787 Dreamliner designated for flight test is now undergoing
final assembly in Everett, WA. The airplane, designated ZA006, will
be powered with General Electric GEnx engines.
Less than two months
after production resumed following last year's machinists
strike, Boeing said progress continues on the fleet.
The first flight test airplane, ZA001, is getting its paint touched
up this week before finishing factory testing.
Power was brought onto the second airplane, ZA002, in late
February, and Boeing says build verification tests are progressing
well. Production work also continues on ZA003, ZA004 and ZA005. In
all, assemblies for 31 Dreamliners are currently in production
throughout the supply chain.
The 787 Dreamliner has orders for 878 airplanes from 57
customers... 33 frames down from previous totals, due to several
cancellations and order conversions.
