First Boeing 787 built at increased rate rolls out of the Everett factory
Boeing has rolled out its first 787 to be built at the increased production rate of seven aircraft per month. The aircraft, which will be delivered to British Airways, is the 114th 787 and the 100th 787 to be built at the Everett, Wash., factory.
Boeing said the 787 program is “on track to achieve a planned 10 per month rate by year end.” The production rate accounts for airplanes built at the Everett Final Assembly facility, the Everett Temporary Surge Line and Boeing S.C., the manufacturer said in a statement.
To date, 50 787s have been delivered to eight airlines. The program has more than 800 unfilled orders with 58 customers worldwide, according to Boeing.
