Signed, sealed, delivered

I thought I’d end the week with some beautiful pictures from a history making day at Boeing South Carolina. Today, the first 787 built at our North Charleston factory was officially delivered to Air India.

Marking a milestone in South Carolina.

The delivery comes within three years of breaking ground in South Carolina and serves as an incredible source of pride for every employee there. One North Charleston employee said it best: “I get chills when I think how big an impact Boeing has had on the local community. And here I am, right in the middle of it, seeing history being made every day.”

Today’s delivery also brings us to a total of 28 Dreamliners delivered to customers around the world. Congratulations to the team in South Carolina for their very first 787 to be signed, sealed and delivered.

Doug (Columbia, SC):

As a South Carolinian I am extremely proud and gratified to see this magnificent aircraft delivered to one of Boeing's many international customers. I am awed by the speed and quality with which this milestone was achieved.

As an engineer who started out in aerospace and defense work, but who moved on to other areas over the years, I can only wish I were young enough to join the Boeing team in my home state.

Congratulations on this great milestones and the many more to come.

Paul Mcdonald (Bristol, UK):

Was lucky enough to see this amazing aircraft being built in Seattle a few months back, amazing achievement - pretty sure you guys will have many more to follow this one in North Charleston...

The Air India livery has to be one of my favorite on the 787. Congratulations to Boeing and Air India on the delivery of the first 787.
