    How could this have been possible in this phase of the aircraft production? :p

    Which phase are you referring to? The one right after the one where they announce they're four phases behind? Or the Sept '07 3 month delay phase, followed by the Oct '07 add'l 3 month delay phase, or the 'replace the the program manager' phase, or the 'buy up the poorly performing vendors' phase, or the April '08 'we're delaying 1st delivery by 15 months' phase, or the Nov '08 further delays phase, or perhaps you're referring to the 'June 15 2009 Paris Air Show "first flight in 2 weeks!!" followed by the June 23 2009 "we need to reinforce the body of the craft before 1st flight" phase? Then again, those are old phases. You're probably referring to more recent phases like the "write off $2.5 billion cause the 1st 3 prototypes are un-sellable' phase, or perhaps you mean the August 2010 "Trent engines blow up causing further delays" phase, or the good ol' August 2010 "Air India suing us for $1 billion due to continued delays" phase??

    Guess I don't feel too bad for giving a split-seconds worth of credence to the OP title. And for the record, I would be ecstatic to be the first aboard the 787 when it goes public. Looking forward to that phase, in fact! C'mon Boeing!!!

    Obviously a fan of April 1? See your post "SMI/J discusses merger with Chicago news crew, copied to youtube.".
    No wonder you are an "Evangelist" on the other side?!?!? Certainly enhances post counts, does it?
