787 readies for First Flight with relief

The relief comes in the face that Boeing’s stock is recovering and with news coming through of preparations for the 787 Dreamliner’s First Flight Boeings stock hit a 12 month high at $55.95!
After so many delays, primarily as this is the first time an airliner has been built this way, company officials promised the 787’s First Flight by the years end.
But the Boeing share price still has a long way to go to recover fully because back in 2007 when they first rolled out the 787, the company’s stock exceed $107…

The company’s Dreamliner could take to the skies as early as next week. Over the past week, aviation writers and enthusiasts have peppered the Web with possible first flight dates: Dec. 14, 15, 18, 19 and 22.

Boeing should have results soon from the 787’s static test, which wrapped up last week. Those results are essential in clearing the Dreamliner for flight.

Meanwhile, production of the 787 is continuing with the first airline test aircraft starting to role off the production line.
