farnborough-header.jpgLONDON -- A pair of Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines made their return to Everett yesterday as Dreamliner One continues to make progress toward its first flight later this year.

The British-made engines returned to Everett several weeks ahead of schedule. The engines were initially set to return in August.

Both were removed following last Summer's roll-out ceremony, arrived in the Everett factory for installation under the wing of Boeing's first 787 Friday afternoon.

According to a program source, the first of the two engines rated at 64,000 lbs of thrust was re-joined to the aircraft late yesterday. The second engine is expected to be re-joined later this weekend.
