Airplane 17, the first 787 for Royal Air Maroc left the paint hangar early Friday morning, becoming the second customer with a painted Dreamliner on the flight line. Parts for ZA150 began arriving in Everett in late January and the aircraft moved to final assembly in early February. RAM's 787 fleet will be powered by the GEnx-1B, the first production 787s to be powered with the General Electric engine. While technically the second painted airline, ZA150 actually becomes the third unique customer to occupy a spot on the flight line as the second were Airplane 10 and 16 for LAN, both painted in white as they await their final coat of paint for the Santiago-based carrier.
