British Airways 787-8 G-ZBJM first flight

British Airways 787-8 G-ZBJM msn 60631/769 first flight from PAE, Nov 8, flying as BOE950.  Hex code 4074E4.

Trivia : G-ZBJL will not be used as the last 2 letters match those of G-BGJL, the British Airtours 737-200 flight 28M which caught fire after a rejected take off at Manchester on 22 August 1985, killing 55 people.  British Airways also skipped G-EUPI in the A319 fleet for the same reason - in this case the ill-fated aircraft was G-ARPI, a BEA Trident which crashed shortly after take off from Heathrow on 18 June 1972.
