from USA Today
EVERETT, Wash. -- After a delay of more than three years and expenditures estimated by The Seattle Times at upwards of $32 billion, Boeing and All Nippon Airways (ANA) signed the formal documents on Sunday morning that completed the contractual delivery of the first 787 Dreamliner.
More pomp and circumstance will come this morning at a special delivery ceremony at the 787 factory in Everett, Wash.
That will be followed by the flyaway of the plane -- Airplane 24 -- which is painted in ANA's special livery, at 6:35 a.m. PT on Tuesday.
