Guy Norris: Boeing says first delivery remains on track

Guy Norris posted an article today saying the Boeing still firmly believes they will deliver the first 787 to ANA in mid 1st quarter of 2011 despite the amount of rework that needs to be done.

Guy also says that ZA004 should fly later this week with updated electronic engine control software loaded and will be receiving the package "B" Trent 1000 engines soon. I've been told that ZA004 should go into layup to have those engines installed sometime this month and should re-emerge in December for return to flight after ground testing the engines.

You should get material on the Quantas A380 uncontained failure of a Rolls-Royce emgine to see if similar to the 787 engine problem.

Even though it's too early to know what exactly happened and to get azny detailed information the results between the two incidents are very similiar and it does seem that Rolls Royce may have a huge problem on its hands with the Trent 900 and Trent 1000. Two uncontained failures within three months of each other is very un-nerving.
