It has been several months since we last heard about the B787 Dream Tour marketing tour. Last time Boeing shared an update from the tour it was hitting Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, but this time it is a little closer to home – Washington, D.C.
Also in Dreamliner news, on April 27th the first B787 from the secondary production line in Charleston, South Carolina was rolled out. The principal production line is in Everett, WA, but to meet production goals Boeing needs multiple lines. The current plan is to increase production to ten units per month, with seven coming from WA and three from SC.
