Boeing has rolled its first 787 Dreamliner out of the paint hangar after a week-long hibernation, marking the first time the composite jetliner has been presented publicly since the July 2007 rollout ceremony.

Flightlglobal.com.affiliate and FlightBlogger editor Jon Ostrower was on site to view the roll out just as the modified 747-400 Large Cargo Freighter was landing nearby.

While in the fuel dock, ZA001 will undergo fuel system calibration tests later this week before moving officially to the Everett flight line for its first auxiliary power unit and engine start.

Boeing plans to fly the first 787 Dreamliner by the close of the second quarter of 2009.
