Default 787-10 Circles On Side ?

Hi,

Saw a side view of the new 787-10 right behind Trump the other day.

There appeared (on the side) several greyed in circles with writing next
to them, and also a circle without any writing.

As they are on the side of the fus'l., am curious as to what
they are for ?

Are they Ports for "something" ?

Thanks,
Bob

Boeing Debuts 787-10 Dreamliner

Airplane scheduled to fly in the coming weeks, deliver to customers in 2018

Photos(2)

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C., Feb. 17, 2017 –*The Boeing (NYSE: BA) 787-10
Dreamliner, the third member of the 787 Dreamliner family, made its debut
today at Boeing South Carolina. Thousands of employees at the North
Charleston, S.C. site celebrated the event, along with U.S. President Donald
Trump and South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster.


“What’s happening here at Boeing South Carolina is a true American success
story,” said Dennis Muilenburg, Boeing chairman, president and CEO. “In
just a few short years, our team has transformed a greenfield site into a
modern aerospace production facility that is delivering 787s to airlines all
over the world and supporting thousands of U.S. jobs in the process.”


The 787-10, built exclusively at Boeing South Carolina, will now be prepared
for its first flight in the coming weeks.


“This airplane, the most efficient in its class, is the result of years of
hard work and dedication from our Boeing teammates, suppliers and community
partners in South Carolina and across the globe,” said Kevin McAllister,
Boeing Commercial Airplanes president and CEO. “We know our customers,
including launch customer Singapore Airlines, are going to love what the
787-10 will do for their fleets, and we can’t wait to see them fly it.”


Boeing will deliver the 787-10 to airlines in 2018. The airplane has won 149
orders from nine customers across the globe.


The 787-10, the longest model of the Dreamliner family, will grow the nonstop
routes opened by the 787-8 and 787-9 with unprecedented efficiency. As an
18-foot (5.5-m) stretch of the 787-9, the 787-10 will deliver the 787
family’s preferred passenger experience and long range with up to 10 percent
better fuel use and emissions than the competition. The 787 Dreamliner family
is a key part of Boeing’s twin-aisle strategy, which offers a modern,
optimized and efficient airplane family in every market segment. Since
entering service in 2011, the 787 family has flown more than 140 million
people on 530 routes around the world, saving an estimated 13 billion pounds
of fuel.
