787 movements

BOEING is to buy the South Carolina facility owned by Vought Aircraft Industries.  This is seen as a strengthening of the 787 supply train, the plant responsible for major parts of the fuselage.  It also could be a factor as to where Boeing goes in respect of its much vaunted second production line for the aircraft.  Whilst the Everett plant is a clear favourite nothing has been confirmed as yet.  At the time of this week's AERBT publication the 787 prototype was involved in high speed taxiway runs but no lift off as yet. www.boeing.com/787milestones
