There are several good photos of the 787 production line and fatigue test airframe in the attached slide show.

I think it's an excellent article, especially helpful in pulling it all together after reading the various threads here. Posts and blogs only give a partial picture, and are no substitute for good journalism. I think Boeing execs have been candid in this piece, and the risk-sharing arrangment with vendors(and its pitfalls) is made very clear.

On non-political matters, both the WSJ and the NYT are examples of journalism at it's best.

I think they got one thing wrong ... correct me please, if I am wrong ...

They said that the wing was Designed by the Japanese (Mistubishi), but wasn't it designed by Boeing with Mistubishi's help?

The original plan, at least, was to outsource the wing design to the Japanese. This caused a great amount of angst within SPEEA and Boeing's engineering community since the wings are considered part of the "crown jewels" of aircraft design. So it's possible that Boeing either took the design back in-house or they shared the design with the Japanese.

Boeing did design the wing/body join area that is the source of the current issue.

The article is SO feelgood, I got a sense from the style of reporting that the plane's delay was, and still is, a mere hiccup that's all.

Fluffy piece with no real meat

I had the feeling too that the journalist is maybe a bit impressed and understanding. I like the photos anyway.

This might have been posted already- apologies if so- but on a slightly related note, has anyone seen yet the picture that the website rediff.com has chosen to illustrate a recent article on Boeing?

Still. Someone SURELY had to realize that wasn't a real picture of a plane.
