First Boeing 787 made in SC rolling out this month

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The first Boeing 787 made in South Carolina is being rolled out in a few weeks.

Boeing has announced that the rollout ceremony is set for April 27 at the aircraft manufacturer's plant in North Charleston.

State officials and Boeing executives are planning to speak at the ceremonies.

The aircraft is being built in Boeing's $750 million assembly plant in North Charleston. The plant, which opened last summer, represents the largest single industrial investment in South Carolina history.
