Boeing Photos: Bob Ferguson
The Boeing 787 program is making steady progress toward certifying the all-new airplane and delivering the first Dreamliner later this year.
"It's an absolute joy to see this plane come together," said Kathleen Hughbanks, a structures mechanic. "It is a great plane and I can't wait to get it out to the world."
Although the program has faced challenges, the men and women on the 787 line now have plenty to cheer about. Recent 787 program milestones
include logging 1,000 test flights, more than 3,000 hours of flying and traveling 1,000,000 flight miles.
"Every time I go to the factory and see the planes being assembled I am amazed," said Cory Goulet, from the 787 Propulsion Systems team. "It's been a lot of hard work, but I'm really looking forward to us reaching certification."
