Dreamliner Roll Out Q&A

Boeing has released the details of the roll out of the 787 Dreamliner at July 8, 2007.

Who will be allowed at the roll out in Everett?

Aviation VIPs, politicians and journalists from across the world will join several thousand Boeing employees who work on the Dreamliner (and one guest) will be allowed inside the 787 final assembly bay for roll out.

If I work for Boeing and I'm in Seattle on July 8th, where can I watch it?

Boeing is permitting 50,000 employees and retirees to come to a simulcast at Qwest Field. Attendance is limited to 50,000 people, and registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The first 25,000 guests will receive a 787 glider as a souvenir.

What if I'm not in Seattle on that day?

If you cannot attend the event at Qwest Field, the rollout will be carried live at 3:30 pm PDT, 6:30 pm EDT via satellite on DirecTV. The 787 roll out ceremony will also be broadcast live on Northwest Cable News (NWCN). The NWCN is carried by cable networks in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.

What channel will it be on?

DirecTV - channel 576.
DishNetwork - channel 9601.

What if I don't have DirecTV or DishNetwork?

The roll out will be broadcast in nine languages over the internet. It will be broadcast live at newairplane.com and boeing.com. Replays will be available on both websites until 8/8/07.
