787 Testing Delayed Due to Break System Issues

Dammit, right when it was looking up for them :( This might be why only ZA001 has been the only onr flying the last few days. The other 3 have just been sitting around.

EVERETT Wa. -Boeing announced late Wednesday yet another delay in the 787 program. The delay this time stems from break systems issues. According to the press release, the breaking systems repeatedly failed to maintain proper temperatures during hard breaking.

Boeing CEO Jim McNerney stated that "We will have this issue fixed as soon as we possibly can. We have the entire Boeing team working on a solution". According to the press release, the problem may take as many as 4-6 months to resolve. This would further postpone the already significantly delayed 787 Dreamliner program started by Boeing in 2004. Deliveries of the aircraft to ANA, All Nippon Airways would only be delayed by 2-3 months. A response of ANA has yet to be obtained.























Have a great Day! :b

It's going to take them 4-6 months to get a new microwave?

It kinda reminds me of the joke (IDK if it's real, it's something I was told in high school) about the Space Race. The US invested thousands of dollars to create a pen that could be able to write in space...the Soviets used a pencil.

EDIT: Umm...epic fail :oops: I'll get you guys eventually. :twisted:

Good try Mr. Farris. Good try.

Almost had me when you said "late Wednesday", but I wasn't falling for it. Nope. :laugh:

So the 787 testing has been delayed due to a spelling problem? :lol:
