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.
