Going to 10

As many of you know, the 787 program is increasing rate for the third time in just over a year — this time to 10 airplanes per month. Yesterday, the first airplane being built at the 10 per month rate loaded into our Everett factory.

This is the biggest rate break ever for a twin-aisle airplane and the entire 787 team has done an outstanding job of reaching this target as scheduled. Enjoy the photos.

Congratulations, Any plans for Charleston for an Increase, other than a monthly 8-2 split between Everett and Charleston?

V V (Montréal, Québec):

So, you will deliver about 120 787 in 2014. Is that correct?

Norman (Long Beach, CA):

It could be more than 120 787s in 2014 as production might step up but that is quite a number and with nearly 1000 on order and more on the way the production is secured for a long long time.

rsal (CLAREMONT):

Congratulations Boeing, hope you will be able to deliver 10 plane per month from now on . I think special attention should be given for that.
Good Luck
