Boeing 787 Dreamliner parts delivery and virtual assembly

The initial rollout of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner from the Boeing plant in Everett, WA will be July 8, 2007. (7/8/7 -- get it?). Blogger Jonathan Ostrower over at Flight Blogger has put together a great video about the deliveries of all the major structures to the plant during April and May of this year. The video winds up with a very clever 'virtual assembly' of all of the main components.

Jonathan posted the video on YouTube so that all of us can enjoy it:
