On the Everett flightline this morning is 787 line 23, Japan Airlines JA822J. This Dreamliner has engines installed and there are quite a few people working on the airplane. So let's see. 787 line numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 9 have flown. Line 8 is in Bay 3 of ATS Hangar 3. The only other 787 in Everett with engines is line 23, and it appears like it is being readied for flight next. Hmm. Why would Boeing skip over airplanes 10 through 22 and fly 23 next?
