Dreamliner 4 main fuselage delayed by only a few days.

Ok just out on Bloomberg. Alenia said that a temporary worker put the wrong fasteners in 11 holes in the midbody fuselage which damaged a 30 cm area. The section was repaired with a carbon fiber patch which is the ususal procedure. The section's delivery will be delayed by only a few days as a consequence. The temporary worker was fired.


Jon Ostrower got a response from Alenia. Read it here.

Also Susanna Ray, a reporter for Bloomberg News has an excellent article detailing Boeing stock price moves over the last few days and the issue with Dreamliner 4. Read it here.
