B789 FinalEverett 640Final B787 built at Everett

On Friday 26 February, the final Boeing 787 built at Everett moved at the factory at Paine Field (WA). The aircraft, a B787-9, is c/n 66524 and will be delivered to All Nippon Airways. The B787 in the background is c/n 66514, which is a B787-9 for Japan Airlines and already made its first flight last October, but was back in in the factory for rework.

On 1 October 2020,  Boeing officially announced that it will consolidate the production of all their B787s to its Charleston-site in South Carolina. Until now, Boeing has produced B787-8s and -9s at Seattle (WA), and -8s, -9s and -10s at Charleston (SC). As the Charleston-plant was the only location with the infrastructure to assemble the largest variant of the Dreamliner, the consolidation there was already expected. According to our database, Boeing has built 296 Boeing B787-8s and 391 B787-9s at Everett (WA). In Charleston (SC) it has built 107 B787-8s, 258 B787-9s and 98 B787-10s.
