Boeing has decided that the 787-10 will be assembled in Charleston.

Quote:
Boeing to Assemble 787-10 Dreamliner in South Carolina

EVERETT, Wash., July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] announced today that final assembly of the 787-10, the newest and longest member of the 787 Dreamliner family of airplanes, will take place exclusively in North Charleston, S.C.

Boeing will continue to assemble both 787-8s and 787-9s in Everett, Wash., and North Charleston. Design of the 787-10 is underway in Everett, with final assembly of the first 787-10 scheduled to begin in South Carolina in 2017.

"We looked at all our options and found the most efficient and effective solution is to build the 787-10 at Boeing South Carolina," said Larry Loftis, vice president and general manager, 787 program, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "This will allow us to balance 787 production across the North Charleston and Everett sites as we increase production rates. We're happy with our growth and success in South Carolina, and the continued success at both sites gives us confidence in our plan going forward."

The 787-10 will be 18 feet (5.5 meters) longer than the 787-9. With 10 feet (3 meters) of that increase in the midbody section, the 787-10 midbody is too long to be transported efficiently from North Charleston, where systems integration work is performed, to the Everett facility for final assembly. In addition, introducing the 787-10 in North Charleston takes advantage of that facility's capacity while allowing the Everett facility to continue improving productivity as it focuses on the 787-8 and 787-9.

The 787 production system includes three production lines: two in Everett (including a temporary surge line) and one in South Carolina. The integrated production system currently operates at a production rate of 10 airplanes per month. As announced last year, the 787 production rate will increase to 12 airplanes per month in 2016 and 14 per month by the end of the decade.

The Everett facility will continue to assemble seven airplanes per month, while Boeing South Carolina final assembly will gradually increase from three 787s per month today to five per month in 2016 and seven per month by the end of the decade.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner family of airplanes offers airlines unmatched fuel efficiencies and environmental performance, while providing a new level of comfort for passengers through the thoughtful application of new technologies. To date, the 787 family has won more than 1,000 orders and more than 165 airplanes have been delivered to 21 customers worldwide.

The 787-10 will leverage 787 technology to provide more passenger and cargo capacity along with unparalleled seat-mile economics in the medium twin-aisle market. Since its launch in June 2013, the 787-10 has won 132 orders from six global customers.

When I was young, about the age of 8/9, I had my first trip on a KLM 747 to PBM (Paramaribo). I was always very fond of KLM's livery and was delighted to board the plane but on that summer day when I walked with my family to the gate to board the plane I saw this magnificent Royal Jordanian widebody plane with that mesmerizing black-gold-red-white livery on my right-hand side when I walked towards the KLM in the walkway. It was the first and only other livery after the KLM's that took my breath away and got stuck in my head forever.

LN19 is back into storage on the RWY11-29.

It's only my suspicion, but I think they swapped engines' pylons with LN11. LN11 will have GEnx-1B engines, but this frame was built for ANA, so it has pylons for RR Trent-1000. LN19 original customer was RAM, so it has pylons for GEnx. So swapping pylons is good idea if you don't want overburden pylons' supplier.

Flightglobal reports that United is converting a large part of their remaining 787-8 order to the 787-10.

http://www.flightglobal.com/news/art...ariant-402363/

Quote:
United converts majority of 787-8 orders to -10 variant

United Airlines has converted seven of its eight remaining Boeing 787-8 orders to the larger 787-10, as it prepares to take its first 787-9.

The Chicago-based carrier will take the seven 787-10s from 2018 under the deal that was reached with Boeing in July, it says in a quarterly stock exchange filing. The 787-8s were scheduled for delivery in 2017 and 2018.

United plans to use the roughly 320-seat 787-10 to replace the 242-seat Boeing 767-400ER and the up to 348-seat Boeing 777-200, vice-president of fleet Ron Baur told Flightglobal in May.
This means that their last 787-8 will be LN238, it will enter final assembly later this month.

United 787 orderbook:

787-8: 12
787-9: 26
787-10: 27

That must mean that they either got a nice discount or the 787 is worth the investment.

ZK-NZF 2nd 789 for Air New Zealand painted
Engines' pylons on LN14 have been removed, so this frame will get GEnx-1B engines too. And it's looks like my theory is right. LN17 is now outside the EMC, probably for the same reason as LN19 was outside EMC few days ago (now back to storage) - switching pylons.

As you can see, LN19 has different tape on the windshield:

LN17:

2nd engine is being removed from LN133 ZB002 N789FT (future ZK-NZD). I wonder how many months it will spend undergoing re-work.
