Boeing to complete 787 wing fix design and validation this week

| | Comments () | TrackBacks (0) |
In its third quarter 2009 earnings call, Boeing CEO Jim McNerney reiterated that his company remains on track for 787 first flight, adding that engineers will complete and validate the detailed design for the side of body modification later this week.

Boeing will then move toward completion of the installations of the structural fittings on the side of body. Once complete, ZA001 will go repeat some gauntlet testing and taxi tests before flying.

When asked about the schedule and the pace of the design, McNerney replied, "The schedule changes every day, problems come up, we have to deal with them."

McNerney added that within those events, the schedule for 787 first flight remains on track for the close of 2009.
