      That does bring up a question though. Why is it so that the rudder comes in pre-painted while the aircraft is still in the assembly stage. Anyone know ?

        It's balanced, and balancing is completed after paint.

          I'm guessing it's so employees know which aircraft belong to who at a glance?

            So walking down the C-130 line at Lockheed one would have to know which shade of gray, which customer is using. Figure the odds on that... Then when you figure, USAF(AMC), USMC, Canada, Norway all use pretty close to the same, if not the same shade, no quick ID at a glance...

                Whats the odds on one of these being delivered before the B787 is delivered. Both are stunning aircraft and hopefully will see them both at this years airshow.
