EVERETT, Washington–On Monday, three years later than originally planned, Boeing will deliver the first of its much-anticipated 787 Dreamliners to its launch customer, All Nippon Airways (ANA). On Sunday, the manufacturer invited a group of media representatives on a tour of the Dreamliner factory floor.

This is a forward fuselage section of a Dreamliner that’s currently at the end of the assembly line, where four of the planes are always under production.
