Boeing to probe 787 jet fleet

Boeing will inspect its entire test fleet of 787 Dreamliners before further flights after identifying a “workmanship issue” that affects the jet’s horizontal stabilisers, the company said yesterday. Boeing said it expects the issue will be addressed within the existing programme schedule and that the 787 remains on track for the first delivery to All-Nippon Airways by the end of this year. Boeing said that fixing each plane will take up to eight days, but reports the fleet was grounded were incorrect.
