While most of you were sleeping Friday night, a gorgeous sight emerged from one of our paint hangars in Everett. The first ever 787-9 is now sporting a brand new livery.
This refreshed look began with the 747-8 and evolved with the 737 MAX. The new livery retains many of the features of the original 787-8 livery, while adding a number on the tail.
We’re on track to roll out and fly the 787-9, currently in final production, in late summer. First delivery to launch customer Air New Zealand is set for mid-2014. Thanks to Boeing photographer Gail Hanusa for staying up late to capture these images— in the still of the night.
