It is always a special treat to get inside the Boeing Factory. Even more so, when one is able to bring a camera. During the standard Boeing Factory tour, guests are not allowed to take any photos. Even during special media events where Boeing has allowed cameras, they have not allowed journalists the opportunity to be on the 787 factory floor. During ANA’s delivery event, media was invited to take a tour of the 787 Dreamliner line, on the factory floor and I wanted to share some of the photos.

Great pictures David and I think an awsome experience of been inside Boeing. But the second picture is from an Ethiopian 787 in construction not from an Air India.

Thank you and you are correct — fixed it :)

United special 787 launch delivery FTW. Great pictures and nice touch with the modified 777 stairs.

Members of the USS Colonial LSD-18 Association held our annual reunion in Seattle in 2012 & we took the Boeing Factory Tour; quite impressive.
I put together the annual reunion book highlighting the activities at the reunion. Unfortunately, Boeing wouldn’t allow me to take photos. Is it permissible to copy some or all of these photos to include in this year’s album? I would give credit on the page(s) where they would appear. (We usually print and distribute about 40 copies of the reunion book).
Thank you.
