I saw B717 T-1 out and about doing some taxi tests out at Long Beach
this afternoon. (I had forgotten how slooowly those first tests go.)
It's still about a month away from first flight, right? With 60 firm
orders and 20 options? Only an order of magnitude less than the B737NGs
at the same maturity.
