Boeing statement on 787 wing delamination claim

| | Comments () | TrackBacks (0) |
Ben Sandilands, Australian aerospace reporter and author of Plane Talking, got an official statement from Boeing on the 787 wing delamination claim which was featured (and debunked) over the weekend. Apparently, when Ben asked Boeing about the claim, he was "repeatedly asked to use Ostrower's subsequent determination of the rumor as having no substance in lieu of a Boeing statement."

Here's what Boeing had to say:

Our tests continue to confirm that the composite construction of the 787, including the wing, is sound. The 787, like every commercial jetliner, is going through a rigorous series of tests to verify the safety and certificability of its structure, systems and operations. The FAA will review the results of this compliance activity prior to certifying the airplane for commercial use.
