Production included joining the seven main parts of the 787 at the Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) plant in Everett, Wash. The seven parts include the two wings, three parts of the fuselage, and two parts of the tail section.
The fifth airplane is the first to be powered with General Electric engines; previous 787s used Rolls-Royce engines. The first flight of the 787 model is scheduled for the second quarter of this year.
“This airplane signifies our return to a steady production rhythm,” said Jack Jones, vice president of 787 final assembly and change incorporation for the Chicago-based company, in a statement.
