Usually the snow is heaviest in January.
I assume you mean steve/dell/etc. I put the idiot on ignore some time ago so I don't notice when he posts. Not worth my time (or anyone else's). Final count is 60 planes for February unless the reporting sites missed something. Not bad but it means they are going to need a few months of 68-70 deliveries to make up the shortfall in order to meet the end of year goal.

A new class of Boeing-built spacecraft will fly into orbit for the first time Sunday aboard a Falcon 9 rocket, combining Boeing’s electric propulsion technology with SpaceX’s bargain launch prices to send up communications satellites at a fraction of the typical cost.
SpaceX ground teams are preparing for liftoff of the 224-foot-tall Falcon 9 rocket at 10:50 p.m. EST Sunday (0350 GMT Monday) from Cape Canaveral’s Complex 40 launch pad. The launch window extends for 42 minutes, 30 seconds.
The launch will be SpaceX’s third Falcon 9 mission in less than three months, with two more Falcon 9s due for liftoff by mid-April.
The spacecraft mounted on top of the Falcon 9 rocket are owned by Paris-based Eutelsat and Asia Broadcast Satellite headquartered in Bermuda and Hong Kong, ready to begin missions to beam television, multimedia services, Internet traffic and other services across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Once released from the Falcon 9 rocket, the satellites will employ efficient electrically-powered engines instead of liquid fuel to reach their final operating posts 22,300 miles above the equator.
“So far, everything is going well, and knock on wood if the weather cooperates, we should have a launch on Sunday night,” said Ken Betaharon, chief technology officer at ABS.
The final February count is 61 planes including 12 787's. A good showing compared with January.
The March 787 delivery target looks like 13 planes.

Boeing wants to patent its process for 3D-printed replacement aircraft parts. And here’s a novel twist in this era of pre-emptive patent filings: The company is already using 3D-printed aircraft parts. In a patent application published this week by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Boeing describes a method and apparatus for requesting, authorizing, printing, and even paying for aircraft parts under the straightforward title of, “Three Dimensional Printing of Parts.”It turns out Boeing is currently using this approach for real aircraft. A company spokesman explains, “When production 3D printed parts need replacing, we use 3D printed parts.” Right now, Boeing spokesman Nathan Hulings says, the company only uses non-metallic 3D printed parts on production programs.
