787 News

Last night Boeing moved both ZA006 and ZA531 (LN 16) for LAN out of building 40-24. ZA531 was moved to stall 105 on the Boeing flightline and ZA006 was moved to the paint hangar 45-04.

Also yesterday, the main fuselage for ZA177 (LN 23) and the wings for ZA116 (LN 24) arrived into Everett. All the major parts are now in building 40-26 and will be moved into position late Sunday night/early Monday morning. There will be a line move tomorrow where ZA100 (LN 7) will be moved out to building 40-24 (Later ZA1001 will be moved into the same building).

There is an unconfirmed rumor that I'm working to verify that ZA005 will fly as early as Monday, June 14th. Stay tuned ad I hope to have more information on this soon.

Lastly, Matt Cawby got pictures and video of G-STBA, the first 777-300ER for British Airways coming out of the Boeing paint hangar.

Any word on ZA104, LN12? It has been in the temporary hangar now for a long time - seems like at least 4 months.

I've asked but got no new news. You're right it has been in there for a long time and I can only speculate what's going on.
