Boeing Co. has discovered a flaw in fuselage sections that may affect 55 of its new 787 Dreamliner jets and slow some deliveries, James Albaugh, Boeing's chief executive for commercial airplanes, said Wednesday. The Dreamliner is an all-new commercial jet that is largely made of lightweight carbon composites rather than sheets of aluminum. The plane made its first passenger flight with All Nippon Airways in October, but it was more than three years late because of design problems and supplier issues.

Boeing Co. predicted Thursday that the Air Force would order as many as 14 more C-17 transport jets, extending the plane's production. Boeing is funding parts purchases at its own expense in anticipation that the Air Force will add more C-17s to its 190-plane order. The Chicago-based company has delivered 170 aircraft already and may shut down production in Long Beach if additional orders don't come in.
