Boeing 787-9 Roll Out

The first Boeing 787-9 widebody aircraft is towed out of the factory in preparation for first flight.

It was loaded into assembly on 05/30, so it only took about one and a half month to complete it. That's not that much longer then the time the 787-8s currently spend on the assembly line. 

Which is a big contrast with the first 787-8 prototypes that took a lot longer, only to roll-out with lots of work still needed to be done. 

The 787-9 will also spend some time on the flight line before it's 1st flight, but not as long as the 1st -8 prototype.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a long-range, mid-size wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner developed by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Its variants seat 210 to 330 passengers. 

Boeing states that it is the company's most fuel-efficient airliner and the world's first major airliner to use composite materials as the primary material in the construction of its airframe. 

The 787 has been designed to be 20% more fuel efficient than the 767 it is to replace. The Dreamliner's distinguishing features include mostly electrical flight systems, a four-panel windshield, noise-reducing chevrons on its engine nacelles, and a smoother nose contour. It shares a common type rating with the larger 777 twinjet, allowing qualified pilots to operate both models, due to related design features.
