The Everett weather may be looking to put a hold on deliveries for the next few days and may ground aircraft all together. The Seattle area is expecting rain....a lot of it as Mt Ranier is forecasted to have 10 FEET of snow but the lower elevations, while not getting that much, will probably be clobbered as well with large amounts of rain. Boeing is still stuck at 35 deliveries in total to 8 customers. There has been some movements of assembled aircraft with ZA504 (LN 15) moving to the Runaway storage area and ZA150 (LN 17) moving to the EMC. In a surprise move, ZA381 (LN 36, B-2726) was moved to the EMC, ostensibly for change incorporation. This MAY indicate some movement to deliver 787s to the Chinese (China Southern and Hainan) but it's too early to tell. This aircraft could easily go back to the temporary parking/storage that it had previously occupied. ZA175 (LN 20) finally made it inside the EMC to continue change incorporation and finally ZA287 (LN 52, N26903) was moved to the paint hangar and should be out soon. Interestingly ZA285 (LN 45, N29601) is still out on the flightline even though it was pulled out of the EMC earlier.
With the Thanksgiving holidays coming up along with the rainy weather in the Pacific Northwest, don't expect too much happening out of Everett this week. There is supposed to be a line move early next week. Lastly, there is a rumor that Air India will be able to pay for another 787 this week and fly it away from Charleston but so far nothing has happened.
