We've know for some time that Boeing's North Charleston 787 Dreamliner assembly plant has been aiming to hit three 787s per month in addition to the Washington line's production for a total of 10 month.

But when Boeing wasn't busy writing it's logo across the sky, the timeline got a bit more fixed -- the three planes-per-month goal is expected to be achieved by the end of 2013. 

And the Charleston plant still has a way to go with the first Boeing 787 Dreamliner to roll out of the North Charleston assembly line is due to be picked up by Air India. The plant's Puget Sound twin is already producing 2.5 Dreamliners per month.
