In early December, an orbiting satellite snapped updated photos of the flight line at Palmdale Regional Airport in southern California, catching the ZA001, the first 787, shortly after ferrying from Boeing Field on December 1 for long-term storage. As you can see, one of the two Rolls-Royce Trent 1000s had already been removed with pieces of the thrust reverser and nacelle sitting along side the aircraft.

The lead 787 flight test aircraft was joined on February 7 by ZA002, while each awaits word on a more formal spot for permanent retirement from flying.

Hat tip to Zach Rosenberg for finding this.
