That's a standard hinge, it looks the same as on any aircraft type.

Making it more "aesthetically pleasing" would only add more weight, more then can be compensated performance wise with a better streamline of the smoother surface.


Here's a picture that shows the hinge on an A350, it's pretty similar.

The 1st BA 787 is in storage at Paine Field. You can see it on the blog. It has to have some work done before it is airworthy. I think it was built during the 787 battery incident grounding.

G-ZBJA should get bettery fix already.

Paine Field looks like mess now. Two frames are ready for delivery (JA834J, A7-BCD), next ones should be ready soon (C1 flight for SP-LRD has been canceled today). Situation will be much clearer after about 20 deliveries from PAE, I think in mid-August.

Boeing Schedules 787 Dreamliner Pair for Paris Air Show

CHICAGO, June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A pair of superefficient 787 Dreamliners will be the featured Boeing products on display at the Paris Air Show, which begins June 17 at the Le Bourget exhibition center.

One 787 will perform daily flying displays from Monday through Friday, while the other – a Qatar Airways 787 – will be on static display. The Boeing ScanEagle unmanned aircraft system will appear as part of the U.S. Corral display throughout the show.

The company will highlight its air show activities via a special website, www.boeing.com/paris2013, and through its Twitter feeds: @Boeing, @BoeingAirplanes and @BoeingDefense. The website will be updated regularly with briefings and videos from the show.
http://boeing.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=43&item=2693


There will be a "Twin-aisle Development Briefing" on Tuesday, June 18.
Quote:
Scott Fancher, vice president and general manager of Airplane Development for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, will provide an overview of Boeing's twin-aisle strategy to meet future market requirements as well as an update of development progress on the 787-9, 787-10X and 777X.
I predict that the 787-10 will be officially launched on this day.

British Airways announces A380, 787 deliveries

British Airways (BA) has detailed delivery schedules of the first members of its new long-haul fleet.

BA’s first two Boeing 787s (from 42 on order) will arrive June 26 and 27, with the first of its 12 Airbus A380s due to touch down in the UK July 4, the second in September.

The carrier has not yet announced initial destinations or dates for inaugural flights of the Boeing twinjet.

Seats on the A380 are on sale for travel from Oct. 15 to Los Angeles and from Nov. 15 to Hong Kong, but dates for inaugural services have not formally been announced.

British Airways also has six Boeing 777-300ERs on order for delivery over the next four years.

“Over the next 12 months, we will take delivery of new long-haul aircraft at an average rate of one every two weeks,” BA CEO Keith Williams said Monday, adding the airline will take delivery of 22 long-haul aircraft by the end of summer 2014.

The UK flag-carrier will be the first European airline to operate both the A380 and the 787.

Following their arrival, both types will begin a complex entry into service program, which includes pilot and cabin crew training at Manston Airport, customer service trials at London Heathrow and short-haul flying for both aircraft.

A look at 40-24, the surge line yesterday.


LN120 ZA122 JA823A ANA being rolled out from position 4, since this is not a assembly position they use this position for final work that usually is done on the flight line. Behind in the diagonal position is LN122, ZA562, ILFC/Aeromexico on position 3.


http://kpae.blogspot.com/


A look further back shows the already painted LN115, ZA561, N961AM, ILFC/Aeromexico on position 2. This position is free because they skipped the production slot before the 1st 787-9, the LN126, ZB001, that can be seen at the back in position 1. They used this opportunity to a battery modification or some final work on position 2, also because there's no space on the flight line.

Meanwhile on the EMC we see battery mods on the LN114, ZA452, G-ZBJC, British Airways.

Japanese carrier transfers passengers after Boeing 787 Dreamliner's engine won't start

A Boeing Co. 787 jet has had engine trouble before takeoff in southwestern Japan a day after a rival Japanese carrier had trouble with another Dreamliner.

Neither problem is with the lithium-ion batteries that were overheating and resulted in the aircraft being grounded for months. The 787 returned to commercial service last month after measures were taken so overheating won't spread.

All Nippon Airways spokesman Yoichi Uchida said the plane was scheduled to depart Wednesday from Ube to Tokyo's Haneda airport but the right-side engine would not start. He said its 141 passengers are taking other flights.

A Japan Airlines 787 returned to Haneda shortly after takeoff Tuesday because of a problem in its deicing system.

All eyes are now on the 787 ofcourse, that's the only reason that almost every small problem comes in the news. Similar issues that happened with type of aircraft don't make the news, even if they happen more frequently.

And with the 787s back in full operation it's not that strange that there will be issues, the aircraft is still in it's teething problems stage. And Boeing has said that the performance before the grounding was better then any other new Boeing aircraft type. Except for the batteries the entry into service was actually going very smooth, even with several other problems like the electronics.

Air New Zealand unveils new livery to promote tourism

Air New Zealand has unveiled a new aircraft livery featuring the iconic official New Zealand fern mark as the carrier joins with Tourism New Zealand in a one-year partnership to promote travel to New Zealand in selected international markets.

“The new livery will be progressively rolled out across the entire fleet from later this year,” Air New Zealand told ATW. “The majority of the airline’s fleet will eventually feature the white version of the new livery and a limited number will feature the distinctive black version of the new design,” the carrier said in a statement.

According to the airline, the two partners will each invest more than $10 million over the next 12 months in marketing to Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, North America, the United Kingdom and Europe, as well as increased activity in emerging markets such as India and Indonesia.

Air New Zealand is the launch customer for the 787-9, which is longer than the 787-8 currently in operation. The airline is scheduled to take delivery of the aircraft between 2014 and 2017.

The livery in the picture shows a 787-9. Looks great. The article is on ATW's website if you want to see.

You do realise that this kind of things happens every day to every type of plane, don't you? It's ridiculous that the media would even report this kind of non-event.

Until now the 787 has been the perfect target, be a glitch on the system or a bird posing for a picture on the plane

The ZA004 is that returned to the skies a couple of days is testing the RR engines for the 787-9.

Boeing Takes Test Aircraft ZA004 Out Of Storage For 787-9 Engine Trials

Boeing has reactivated the fourth 787 development aircraft in readiness for initial flight tests of the first engine for the stretched 787-9.

The aircraft, ZA004, which has been in long-term storage at Boeing Field, Wa., since last year, completed a series of check flights June 8-9, before departing for flight tests in Kona, Hawaii on the June 10.

The aircraft is currently powered by the latest Rolls-Royce ‘Package B’ standard Trent 1000 engines but in July will be fitted with the first set of upgraded ‘Package C’ standard engines which will later power the 787-9.
full article:
http://www.aviationweek.com/Article....-02-587117.xml

The engines will eventually also be fitted on the 787-8.

ZA006 should return to PAE soon (in month or two), it has been under re-work since 12 months. I think Boeing will ferry one (ZA005 or ZA004) to San Antonio after tests.

VT-ANM for Air India in Charleston flew 2 times yesterday, probably customer flights. Maybe they will take delivery, finally.
http://flightaware.com/live/flight/B...300Z/KMYR/KCHS

There are 3 planes for Air India after test flights, 2 in Everett (one in Paris for show) and 1 in Charleston. There won't be new frames for AI in some time, but one already completed change incorporation (VT-ANG) for sure, with second (VT-ANE) near ready or maybe already ready for test flights. But great part of backlog will go to chinese carriers, 10 frames are complete, waiting for boeing, customer or delivery flight. China Southern want take 2nd plane this month, LN95 ZA384 from Charleston. Hainan should take delivery of one 787 this month, LN76 ZA431 from Charleston. ZA433, ZA434 and ZA430 can be ready to delivery this month, but probably deliveries will be in early July. 2 more frames will go to China Southern next month, LN43 ZA382 and LN93 ZA383, both from Everett. 2nd one isn't painted yet, but is sitting on flightline. LN100 ZA385 will be waiting for acceptation too, maybe August. The mystery is frame LN79 ZA432 for Hainan. It is stored in Everett without engines nor paint.
