I'm not sure about your other questions, but flight testing of the
Boeing wide bodies (and many of the single aisle planes as well) is
conducted from Boeing Field in Seattle at the Flight Test Center.
Aircraft are carefully inspected and exercised with electrical power and
hydraulics before flight, but once they take off for the first time,
they usually go to Boeing Field for a thorough pre-delivery flight
regine.
