Boeing rolls out first 777 at increased production rate
Boeing has rolled out the first 777 to be built at the increased production rate of 8.3 per month, or 100 airplanes per year. The airplane is a 777 Freighter that will be delivered in February to Korean Air. The production increase began in October when the first airplane parts entered the Everett factory. Planning for the increased rate has been in work for almost a year.
