There’s more progress to share as the 787-9 continues to roll along. The wings for the first airplane recently arrived at our Everett factory.

I also wanted to share a picture of the flight deck for the first 787-9, also known as Section 41 of the airplane. As part of the production process, our friends at Spirit recently powered up Section 41.

It’s great to know the wings and other sections will soon be taking shape for the 787-9 as the airplane moves toward first flight later this year.
