A review team comprising technical experts from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Boeing has confirmed that the 787 Dreamliner aircraft is well-designed and complies with safety standards.

Why no winglets on Boeing wide bodies jets incl 787, 777, 767 ? But all the Airbus fleet having it starting from A318 to A380

Actually, there are winglets on some B767s... like these:

American Airlines B767-300ER (reg. N353AA)


United Airlines B767-300ER (reg. N666UA)

Might be Boeing testing it earlier with 767 !

I wonder why Boeing not using winglet for its Worldliner and Dreamliner.

But at this time Airbus upgrades its winglet in its all current and upcoming A320 series with a winglet similar to 737. Even for A350 Airbus designed a new sort of winglet design

Just curious to see a 787/777 with a winglet.

Actually, the winglets for the Dreamliner are streamlined with the wing design for better lift and fuel efficiency. It may not be that obvious, but the curvature explains it all.

The 787, 767-400, 777-200LR, 777-300ER and the 747-8 all have the "raked wingtips". These raked wingtips are not as visible as the winglets, but according to Boeing they are more effective on the large wings of wide-body aircraft then the winglets that the Airbus planes have.

The old 787-3 Japenese domestic version of the 787 would have had smaller traditional wings with winglets. But the design proved not to be as efficient as the 787-8 and therefor JAL and ANA changed their 787-3 orders to the 787-8.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_787_Dreamliner



With more and more winglets being installed on the 767 the only remaining big Boeing aircraft with traditional wings without winglets are the classics 777s including the 777-200ER. I believe there have been some plans to launch aftermarket winglets for these 777s but that obviously never materialized.

And looks like Boeing moved all early frames outside EMC, 4 bays are for finishing and inspecting current production 787s and 1 for 767 tanker.

EI-LND flew to Dublin, probably to get its tail painted/ vinyled.

Best looking wingflex on the 787. Expect more of these kind of photos as the extension of BHX airport runway finishes up.

ANA will top their current orders up with 14 more 787-9s.
http://boeing.mediaroom.com/index.ph...95&item=129021

This will bring their number of 787-9s ordered to 44, and their total 787 orders to 80. It will make ANA the biggest operator of the 787 again, passing Etihad and even ILFC for the largest number of 787s on order.

Surprisingly no 787-10 order, which was rumored to be key to Boeing's efforts to make ANA choose the 777X.

LN5 ZA005 N787FT outside EMC:


LN167 ZA266 ET-AOU, LN169 ZB003 ZK-NZE, LN173 ZA454 G-ZBJE are inside EMC. LN170 ZA611 C-GHPT and LN171 ZA437 B-2739 are painted, parked outside EMC. LN174 ZA612 C-GHPU and LN175 ZA219 VH-VKF are inside paint hangars.
So 4 bays of EMC are occupied now, probably LN11 or LN14 is inside now. One probably moved to RWY11-29 for storage. Boeing clearly are determined to finish current production frames as fast as it it is possible.

The current frames should now get the biggest priority of course.

I wonder what Boeing will do with the EMC when there's no rework anymore on the current frames. Will they return working on the early birds or will they use it for more 767 tankers?

Only four tankers will join the test program, the next 767s on the assembly line will be freighters again. I assume Boeing will return working on the 787s. Even without a customer, Boeing wants to finish the change incorporation process as quickly as possible.
