Paine Field May 8

ZA819 American Airlines 787-8 N802AN departing on a C1 customer flight.

WE147 Garuda Indonesia 777 PK-GIH was scheduled for a B1 flight today, there was a taxi test only.

FedEx 767 N121FE was moved out of the 45-01 paint hangar to fuel stall F-1.

Boeing has announced that the 787 surge line in the 40-24 will be closed later this year. Back on January 30, 2010 the fatigue test 787 was moved out of the 40-24 (before it was a surge line) to the fatigue test rig at the 40-41 building. In days of olde Dreamliners sported a protective wrapper when they were moved outside.
