There will be more than 200 journalists ready to watch the newly painted Boeing 787 Dreamliner roll into the factory bay in Everett today . Although it hasn't been without it's problems. This picture is exclusive to Lord Patel of the first plane entering the paint shop c/o Randy Tinseth of Boeing (VP Marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes in Seattle) - regrettably he had to turn down the invite to be there.
Production crews are getting ready to beam the event via satellite in nine different languages.
