Dreamliner aircraft Boeing 787 rolls out of South Caroline plant for Air India

Washington, Sat, 28 Apr 2012 NI Wire

As the Civil Aviation Ministry of India, has decided to include four Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft into it’s kitty to revamp the deteriorating situation of state run airliner Air India, the first aircraft in this series has rolled out from South Carolina, a state governed by Indian American Nikki Haley, with great fanfare.

Haley and US Representative Lindsey Graham joined a crowd of nearly 7,000 Boeing employees and guests at the festive rollout ceremony in North Charleston Friday featuring aerial displays, music and entertainment.

This aircraft is likely to begin its flights by mid 2012 as several technical and flying tests are still to go on, media reports say.

The airplane next goes to the flight line, where it will go through systems checks and engine runs in advance of taxi testing and first flight. The airplane remains on schedule for delivery to Air India in mid-2012.

The aircraft for Air India is the first completed at the $750 million plant that opened last year.

Jack Jones, Boeing South Carolina vice president and general manager said that the sale of the first four of the South Carolina aircraft to Air India has nothing to do with Haley, who was born Nikki Nimrata Randhawa to Sikh immigrant parents from India. "That was just the way it worked out."
