Blue skies over Everett today set the stage for a delivery ceremony to remember. Ethiopian Airlines became our third customer, and the first customer in Africa, to take delivery of the 787 Dreamliner. It was incredibly appropriate that the airline decided to name their first 787 “Africa First.” Congratulations to Ethiopian Airlines and everyone on the 787 team for making this dream a reality. Enjoy the photos.
Perfect day for a delivery ceremony.
