A milestone for the oftenly delayed airplane. Hopefully it all goes well so that I may still have a job in the future. :D

Thanks. The is illustrated parts system is copletely new too. I have worked on the 737NG, 767, 777 and 747 which all share a similar illiustrated parts system. 787 on the other hand is just a completely new system that separated it from the rest of the fleet. It sort of created a divide between groups here at work. :D

Endless respect for the company that bets it all on their next airplane... over and over again. Shows quite a bit of faith in their employees, no?
