That's a beautiful station wagon.

"...the company announced it needs to reinforce small areas near the connection of the wings and fuselage before conducting the test flight."

Hopefully, we'll get to see it fly before the close of the year.

That is one great looking airplane, I hope it gets up in the air pretty soon. The back of those RR Engines are funky looking. The Wings and Nose give the B787 a great look. I'm very impressed by the entire design. good going Boeing. uba757

It looks a little stubby forward of the wing. Can't wait to see the 787-9.

Studies conducted show the mid-galley station will probably be bid by the senior babes (F/A's) for its spacious area and working conditions. Due to the extra weight of those in the upper seniority, reinforcing the mid- section was necessary to handle the additional weight stationed there, especially for the rare case of a firm manual landing.
