The 100th 747 for JAL is currently in final body join.

Just read in the Boeing news that a bare 737-600 fuselage, when loaded
on the railroad car in Wichita, weighs 15,000lbs.  A 737-800 fuselage
weighs 19,000lbs.  I just thought that was interesting...

Also, the 767-400ER will have oval windows like the 777.  This saves
500lbs per airplane.
