Boeing may start 787 re-test in early November

I've gotten word that Boeing test engineers are scheduled to be called back to the 787 static test rig. This could signal the testing of the side of body fix for the 787 to verify what Boeing's FEM is predicting. This is all conjecture at this point but a few weeks ago but Guy Norris reported that some of the flight test personnel are returning to work on ZA001 so it could be a good sign that the rework is going according to schedule.

My gut still tells me that first flight would be around last week of November to the first week of December.
