Boeing and Rolls Royce move to put Trent 1000 issues behind them

Boeing and RR execs are meeting today and tomorrow to review the way forward with the Trent 1000 after the uncontained failure in early August.

In an article on Bloomberg News, Rolls Royce will be presenting Boeing 787 executives with their plan to fix the Trent that would not put the first delivery, scheduled for mid February 2011, in jeopardy. Boeing, presumably knowing some of the general facts of the plan said that they believe they will be ok after getting the detailed briefing.
