    First ANA crews complete 787 pilot training

    Boeing said that the first 10 All Nippon Airways pilots have completed training to fly the 787. It said flight test aircraft ZA001 was used to conduct two base training flights May 25 with Boeing instructor pilots and ANA pilots on board. Each ANA pilot performed approaches at Grant County International in Moses Lake, Wash. (ATW Daily News, April 26). “These initial crews to go through training are ANA's senior training pilots and check airmen and will conduct both simulator and airplane line training for ANA in Japan,” Boeing said in a statement.

    Boeing cuts ribbon on $750 million SC plant for 787

    NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. The $750 million South Carolina plant where Boeing will assemble 787 jetliners was dedicated Friday with little mention of a National Labor Relations Board complaint challenging construction of the largest single industrial investment in state history.
    But the lawsuit, which gets its first airing in a Seattle courtroom next week, was the undercurrent as officials and hundreds of plant workers gathered in stifling heat outside the blue and white assembly building the size of 11 football fields.

    First Boeing 787 to be delivered to Japan's ANA airlines rolled out

    EVERETT, Wash. - The warning bell sounds on a Boeing Everett Paint hanger ,as the doors open for a debut.

    While the company has built dozens of 787s beyond the first six test airplanes, it hasn't been able to deliver them. That will change next month and the Dreamliner will be the first to actually be handed over to an airline - Japan's biggest airline, ANA.
