Back in March, Boeing has flown Airplane #23, Japan Airlines' (JAL) first 787 (JA822J), from Everette to San Antonio to activate the San Antonia 787 production line. After 8 months of modifications, JA822J has finally returned back to Everette on Nov 13 to undergo the final stage of production.
The build up of the aircraft will soon be completed, following which it will undergo a series of ground engine runs and test flights. The first of JAL's 787 will then be flown back to Everett where it will be outfitted with interior amenities and equipment, and where it will be repainted with JAL's current red crane logo, ready for delivery to JAL this winter.
