Paine Field December 28

ZA231 Air India VT-ANB departing on a C1 flight.

RC549 Korean Air Cargo HL7624 back from a test flight.

Boeing flightline.

The next airplane to be moved out of the factory will be Korean Air Cargo 777F line 1172 on January 3.



  1. Wow, it's been a long time since we've seen more 747's than 787's on the flighline.

  2. Are all those ANA planes on the right side of the pan picture the ones from the terrible teens that are going to be modified for Lion Air, Rwanda Air and Transaero?

  3. File # 10000 coming up next, Matt - hope it's a good'un ! Best regards and a Happy New Year from Hampshire, England.

  4. TC99, yes. 3 for Transaero are currently undergoing re-work, with completion date probably June/July 2014 for first frame (LN11 ZA800). LN14 ZA802 are inside EMC too, and should be completed around late September/ early November 2014. 3rd frame LN22 ZA803 is outside EMC, if it will be moved inside EMC in Janury, then should be completed around August 2014. 8 other frames (last one for Transaero, 5 for Lion Air, 2 for RwandAir) being currently in storage won't be ready for delivery in 2014. Other frame which will be completed in 2014 is LN28 ZA232 VT-ANC, last early frame for Air India. There is option that LN5 ZA005 can be delivered to BBJ too, but only if it is now undergoing re-work inside EMC. It could occur in late December 2014.

  5. Didn't have very nice weather for # 10000. Happy New Year.
