This is notable for no other reason than I thought it would make for a good Saturday morning post. The first 787, ZA001, has shown up on Google Maps for the first time. The photo was taken while the aircraft was in the middle of gauntlet testing. Best I can tell, the satellite photo was snapped sometime between May 16 and June 15 of last year. ZA001 moved to Stall 105 (pictured) on May 16 and ZA002 went to the flight line on June 16, with my best bet putting it sometime around May 25, based on the unpainted Air France 777-300ER, Emirates SkyCargo and un-marked Air France 777Fs parked to the south.
That being said, here's the latest on the horizontal stabilizer issues and new delivery re-sequencing that is set to begin in September following the delivery of Airplane 27.
Also, it's been three years since roll out.
