Posted this on the Boeing board and thought I'd post a copy here since a sizeable amount of RCs income in the years ahead will be derived from this source:

Check the link posted below if you're interested in following testing progress for Boeing's 787:

"With five months of testing now under its belt, only Boeing knows if it is truly on track for first delivery and certification by the end of 2010, though with about 750 of the 2400 planned flight test hours (for Rolls-Royce certification) accumulated through a five months worth of testing, the goal looks tighter and tighter. While Boeing has not swayed from its projection of a year-end first delivery, ANA - launch customer for the 787 - is quietly making preparations for a further delay into 2011, with other industry sources saying the airline's preparations angle closer to a springtime entry into service for the new composite jetliner."
