Boeing delays test of 787 Dreamliner

September 06, 2007|From Times Wire Services

Boeing Co. postponed the first test flight of its 787 Dreamliner to mid-November to mid-December, about three months later than originally planned, putting pressure on its tight schedule to deliver the first plane in May next year.

The delay, caused by problems programming the flight control software and a shortage of bolts, truncates Boeing's already shortened test flight schedule. But the plane maker is holding to its delivery target and said the delay would not affect financial forecasts.
