Some GOOD News From Boeing This Week
Though overshadowed by the news of a third delay to its 787
Dreamliner program, Boeing would like everyone to know something
GOOD happened this week, too. Mechanics at the American planemaker
began final assembly work on the first 777 Freighter at the
company's Everett, WA facility this week.
The new cargo airplane will roll out of the factory later this
month, and work will begin to prepare the airplane for flight test
Boeing says the 777 Freighter, introduced in 2004, will fly
farther and provide more capacity than any other twin-engine cargo
airplane. Boeing is slated to deliver the first 777 Freighter to
its launch customer Air France in the fourth quarter of 2008.
The 777 Freighter is based on the 777-200LR Worldliner passenger
airplane and is built using the same production line as all other
models of the 777. Eleven customers around the world have ordered
78 777 Freighters to date.
