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.
The wings for the first 787 built at the rate of 10 per month are loaded into position in the Everett factory. All photos by Ed Turner.
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.
