Updated: Also en route is the first A220 cockpit section for Mobile, Alabama, as seen on the picture above, directly from Bombardier facility at Ville St-Laurent/Montreal.
I just got information from Mobile, Alabama A220 team.
The parts for the first A220 to be assembled in Mobile, Alabama left Mirabel, Quebec by truck yesterday for Airbus Mobile, Alabama.
Those are the rear, aft and mid fuselage barrels. On the picture below you can see those three (3) fuselage parts. On this picture there are three (3) aircraft.

As earlier announced on Fliegerfaust, the first A220 to be delivered from Mobile Alabama will be one A220-300 for Delta and its manufacturer serial number (MSN) will be 55069.
The first A220 to be assembled in Mobile Alabama (MSN 55069) will not be assembled in the upcoming new A220 assembly line currently under construction. But where you asked? It will be built in the existing A320 assembly building, to the left of the entrance then moved out to another building for the wing joining.
