Boeing engineers in North Charleston have started the final assembly of the first Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner, marking yet another on-time milestone for the development program.


The first 787-10 will cycle through Boeing South Carolina's Final Assembly facility as all major sections are joined, interior and exterior components completed, power turned on and production tests begin.


The first 787-10 is expected to make its first flight in 2017 and first delivery is scheduled for 2018. To date, Boeing has received 154 787-10 orders from nine customers


The 787-10 is the third member of the super-efficient, passenger-pleasing 787 Dreamliner family. As a stretch of the 787-9, the 787-10 will retain 95 percent commonality while adding seats and cargo capacity.
