100 and counting

The team at Boeing South Carolina marked a major milestone on Tuesday with the delivery of the 100th 787 to roll out of the North Charleston site. (All photos by Alan Marts.)


Employees celebrated with representatives from American Airlines—many of them making the trip down from the airline’s Charlotte hub.


American’s VP of Charlotte hub operations Terri Pope borrowed a quote from American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez by saying the 787 “gives me goosies.”


Thanks to American and all of our 787 customers for helping us reach this milestone—and congratulations to everyone at Boeing South Carolina.

That is a beautiful American Livery as depicted on its horizontal stabilizer. American Airline has caught the Boeing Vision on a sunny day.

Congrats to the Boeing employees in Charleston on the progress of 100 787s delivered.


My Uncle flies a Boeing. He is the person that stoked the fire for flying within me. I want with helicopters (don't hold it against me) and am currently training at http://www.flyhaa.com/helicopter/courses/ Flying is the most freeing and amazing thing that I have ever done! I recommend it for those who having the itch to do so!
