    First Boeing 787-10 to be rolled out Feb. 17
    Boeing plans to roll out the first 787-10, the third and largest variant of the 787, Feb. 17 at its manufacturing facility in North Charleston, South Carolina.

    Boeing started final assembly on the first 787-10 in December 2016. The 787-10, which Boeing has said will have 95% commonality with the 787-9, will be 18 ft. (5.5 m) longer than the 787-9.

    First delivery is scheduled for 2018 to United Airlines.

    The 787-10’s first flight, to be powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 TEN engines, is expected to occur later in 2017.

    There are currently 149 orders for 787-10s from nine customers, according to Boeing.

    Great to see the roaring success the Dreamliner program has become after overcoming the initial production issues.

    Boeing rolls out first 787-10 with Trump in attendance
    Boeing rolled out the first 787-10, the third and largest Dreamliner variant, from its plant in North Charleston, South Carolina, the exclusive final assembly site for 787-10 aircraft.

    More than 5,000 people, many of them Boeing employees, attended a roll-out ceremony featuring a speech by US President Donald Trump.

    Trump, who toured the Boeing South Carolina facility with Boeing chairman, president and CEO Dennis Muilenburg prior to the Feb. 17 ceremony, called the 787-10 “one beautiful airplane” and “an amazing piece of art.”

    An 18-foot stretch of the 787-9, the 787-10 can seat 330 passengers in a single-class layout. First flight is expected later this year. First deliveries are slated for 2018 to Singapore Airlines and United Airlines.

    “I think [Trump] was impressed with what he saw” during the facility tour, Muilenburg said. “This is about manufacturing in the US.”

    Trump used his speech to tout US manufacturing. “Our goal as a nation must be to rely less on imports and more on products made right here in the USA,” Trump said with both the 787-10 and Air Force One, a Boeing 747, in the background.

    Though 787 final assembly occurs in the US, the aircraft is put together via a vast international supply chain that includes parts manufacturing in Japan, South Korea, France, the UK, Sweden, Italy, Canada and Australia.

    Guess you mean RB211-524 & RB211-535.

    Oil leak in service is not necessarily a design fault, nor is it peculiar to R-R engines.

    Dunny is right.. and more importantly don't merrily try a reset or a power down without using the manual.. It wakes up with a headache and your troubles will be multiplied
