Boeing Co. said Tuesday that it was still working through "wrinkles" in the supply chain for its new 787 Dreamliner and hoped to deliver the first aircraft in late 2008. There are still "significant supply-chain wrinkles," said Scott Carson, chief of Boeing's commercial airplane group. Parts shortages are declining and there's greater availability of fasteners needed to assemble the aircraft, Chicago-based Boeing said.

Boeing Co. said Tuesday that its star-crossed 787 Dreamliner had another setback that will again delay its first flight and first delivery. The Dreamliner, already running about two years late, was due to take wing by next week. However, those plans are on hold after Chicago-based Boeing discovered in testing the aircraft's structure last month that it needed to reinforce areas where the wings are joined with the main fuselage.

Scott Carson is stepping aside as the head of Boeing Co.'s troubled airplane business, part of a sweeping management shake-up announced Monday by the Chicago aerospace manufacturer. Carson, 63, plans to retire from Boeing effective Jan. 1 but will depart his current post Tuesday. He will be replaced by Jim Albaugh, 59, who has run Boeing's defense business since 2002.

Winfield Scott Park. The group wants to rename the park in honor of Harry T.

I totally disagree with Steve Springer's analysis on the present Bulls and the past Lakers ["On the Record," April 16]. This is an unfair comparison to begin with, because of the constant evolution of the game. In today's NBA, defenses are more sophisticated than in the past. The game is more complex, more cerebral, more physical and more athletic. Wilt couldn't dominate in today's game as he did in the past. Defense is the key to winning today. The Bulls' traps, presses, double teams and switches would confound the Lakers.

Boeing Co.'s plan to form an in-flight Internet venture with the three largest U.S. airlines collapsed after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks led to a slump in air travel. Boeing halted talks with AMR Corp.'s American, UAL Corp.'s United and Delta Air Lines Inc., which tentatively agreed in June to take equity stakes in the venture. Connexion planned to start equipping as many as 1,500 planes with e-mail and live television by late 2002.
