Boeing sets date for first 787-10 flight from North Charleston

Boeing Co. has set a date for taking its first 787-10 on its first check ride.

The company announced Wednesday that it plans to fly the North Charleston-made jet on March 31, subject to favorable weather conditions and other factors. It will be broadcast live on  

The jet made its public debut last month, the same day President Donald Trump visited Boeing South Carolina and gave a speech with the plane in the background. 

The "Dash 10" aircraft is the newest and largest member of the Dreamliner stable. It's made exclusively in North Charleston. Boeing assembles the other two versions of the 787 locally and in Everett, Washington.
