Looks great!!! Only no screens… propably because the systems first need to installed in the aircraft.. And this flight deck has seats! I can see that many instruments are sealed. Good job, Jon!
finaly someone who knows what we want to see were…
Actually, the screens are there!
They are protected behind the black plates. All the major components are wrapped. The huds look like they’re covered with pot holders. I didn’t sit in the chairs because they are covered with plastic and (more importantly) I wanted to be invited back. Though I did poke my head into all those nooks and crannies of the flight deck.
The headrests made a great tripod for photos so you’ll see those shortly. It’s a beautiful set up. There are three seats in the flight deck, plus another folded one for an additional jumpseat.
The section is 100% of what Spirit is supposed to be shipping to Everett. There are a bunch of things that will happen to the aircraft after it’s joined, but seriously, the condition of assembly was extraordinary. Boeing is incredibly excited to get their hands on this section next week.
They are expecting little, if any traveled work on this section.
Congratulations to Spirit.
Okay, it is only 14 months later (remember that Spirit shipped up prior to the May 2007 start of join). Yet, they were party to the ‘potemkin’ event of last year.
That Spirit is getting the details worked only confirms the fact that the site is full of ex-Boeing workers and management (only 3 years removed).
Vought was starting from a deeper scratch.
I assume the tests were done on Dreamliner1?
Whats the status of interior installation on the remaining test aircraft?
Compared to what Dreamliner 1 looked like, all I can say is.. wow.. what a HUGE amount of progress this particular sub-contractor has made.. if everyone else can get even half this far Boeing may end up having been too pessimistic with their new delivery schedule.
And what evidence do you have that there is bad wiring? Evidence please…and solid evidence if you do indeed have any.
