Boeing South Carolina rolled out its second 787 Dreamliner over the weekend, a company spokeswoman reported Monday.
That plane now sits along the North Charleston campus flight line with the plant’s first product, a 787 painted in the red, white and gold livery of Air India, according to Candy Eslinger, Boeing spokeswoman.
The first plane, which was rolled out to great fanfare on April 27, was supposed to be delivered to Air India in June, but that didn’t happen. Neither the airframer nor the airline has offered a specific delivery date.
Meanwhile, two more Air India 787s are scheduled to arrive in North Charleston later this evening, according to Flight Aware, a flight-tracking website. One appeared to be in the air just before 6 p.m., according to the website. Track the first plane here. Track the second plane here.
Eslinger would not explain why those two planes were traveling to South Carolina.
