First 787 from second assembly line

The first Boeing 787 Dreamliner assembled at Boeing's North Charleston facility (South Carolina) was rolled out of the final assembly line on 27 April. The 787 will be delivered to Air India in mid-2012.
The South Carolina final assembly facility is an addition to the first line in Everett and was completed in June 2011. Boeing South Carolina also has responsibility for fabrication, integration and assembly of the 787's midbody and aftbody fuselage sections. Once complete, the fuselage sections are either delivered to the South Carolina Final Assembly facility, or transported via the Dreamlifter to Final Assembly in Everett (Washington).
