Boeing fine tuning B787 test flight programme

Boeing stated it is making an adjustment to the B787 test flight programme, with a fourth B787 to be flying in Mar-2010, rather than in Feb-2010 as initially planned (Bloomberg, 28-Feb-2010). The aircraft, the third production B787, will have extra test equipment installed. The adjustment is not expected to affect the overall test schedule. All six test aircraft are due to commence test flying by the end of 1H2010.
