Thanks! I wonder in whose hands LN17 and LN19 will end.

Good shot:

Quite interesting. Earlier 789s like ZB005, ZB028 or ZB168 weren't moved inside the EMC.

Any idea when engines will be attached? This frame should be completed in month or two.

Thanks for these photos! EMC activity is really interesting.

EMC work is interesting indeed. Boeing moves these planes around a lot to keep us spotters on our toes. Got yelled at today for the Etihad shot. They where yelling to other workers to shut the hanger doors. I will ask my buddy when the engines will get hung. He is on the crew that hangs the 787 engines.

Very good to hear Avianca is taking delivery. They should have atleast two more at Paine and one down at Charleston ready for delivery. Or the Charleston one is still in pre-delivery preparation.

Boeing press release for the Avianca delivery.

Boeing, Avianca Celebrate Delivery of Airline's First 787 Dreamliner
Colombian flag carrier to use airplane on routes to Europe, North America, across South America

EVERETT, Wash., Dec. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Avianca celebrated the delivery of the first 787 Dreamliner for the Latin American carrier, helping the airline stay at the forefront of technology in the region.

"The addition of the first Boeing 787-8 to Avianca's fleet is a milestone for commercial aviation and for our airline, which strives to bring the most advanced aviation technology to our passengers," said Avianca President and CEO Fabio Villegas Ramirez. "With this aircraft, we continue to fulfill the dream this company has had from the beginning: To make better and better connections between Latin America and the world, while giving our customers more enjoyable flights aboard airplanes designed to provide the greatest comfort along with maximum operational performance."

The 787 is a family of technologically advanced, super-efficient airplanes with new passenger-pleasing features. In addition to bringing big-jet ranges to midsize airplanes, the 787 uses 20 percent less fuel and creates 20 percent fewer emissions than the airplanes it replaces.

"The 787 Dreamliner, with its high efficiency, enhanced environmental performance and preferred passenger experience, is an ideal airplane for the Latin American market, and Boeing is pleased and honored that Avianca will use the 787 to modernize its fleet and delight its customers," said Van Rex Gallard, vice president, Latin America, Africa and Caribbean Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "We are excited to grow our partnership with Avianca for today's fleet and for the future."

In addition to providing airlines with unprecedented fuel economy and low operating costs, the 787 features a host of new features that greatly enhance the passenger experience.

Avianca's Boeing 787-8 will carry 28 passengers in business class and 222 in economy class. Passengers in both classes will also experience cabin environment improvements made possible on the 787 such as dynamic LED lighting, the largest windows, bigger overhead bins, a lower cabin altitude, a more humid environment, low interior noise, cleaner air and a smoother ride.

With 95 years in operation, Avianca is working to fly a younger fleet than ever, flying with leading-edge technology to 24 destinations in Colombia and 98 destinations in South America, North America and Europe.

To date, 58 customers have ordered 1,055 787s, making the Dreamliner the fastest-selling twin-aisle airplane in Boeing history.

The one that delivered was from Everett. N781AV is still at Everett and they have 2 more at Charleston that are awaiting customer acceptance flights. All should be delivered by year end.

I'm going based on what info I found on the All Things 787 spreadsheet. It's not always reflective of what's coming long term down the production line.

But Boeing's media room shows they added 3 to their original order of 12.
