15-Sep-2016 Countdown to 500

The 500th 787 is starting to take shape. The mid and aftbody sections for the milestone airplane were shipped from Boeing South Carolina to our Everett factory last week. The airplane begins final assembly tomorrow. Congratulations to the entire 787 team, and I look forward to seeing this airplane roll out very soon.
