Boeing Marks Production Goal on First 787 With No Modifications

Boeing Co. produced its first 787 Dreamliner able to leave the factory for flight testing without going through a modification center, a pivotal step toward meeting future output goals.

Work on the 66th Dreamliner to be assembled will be finished outside the plant in a few days before it moves to preflight operations, said Scott Lefeber, a spokesman. Boeing now has 50 Dreamliners in or waiting to enter a modification center near its factory in Everett, Washington.
