    Even the BBC cocks it up at times...

    10787 planes per month...that's 348 planes per day...great stuff...
    Boeing 787 first flight announced


    The Dreamliner project has been hit by a number of delays

    The first flight of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner will take place by the end of 2009, the company has announced.
    Boeing also said it hoped to deliver the first plane for service in the last quarter of 2010.
    There have been a series of delays in the development of the aircraft, and it is now running almost two years behind its original schedule.
    Boeing chairman Jim McNerney said the extra time would enable the remaining work to be completed.
    The delay was partly caused by an area within the side-of-body section of the aircraft which needed to be reinforced, Boeing added.
    The company hopes to be making 10,787 planes per month by the end of 2013, and last month said it already had 850 orders.
    It also revealed that it had received 13 new orders for 787s between April and June, but that airlines had cancelled 41 others.

    Easy to spot, they meant to say 10 787 planes per months but it got lost somewhere.

    It's been changed to: The company hopes to be making 10 of the 787 planes a month by the end of 2013.

    Probably taken directly from the American company's press release
