    Alenia 787 stabilizer production problems have caused serious delays in the 787 program and major irritation to Boeing and customers. It comes as no great surprise that Boeing has been looking for a solution to the mess. As a result this announcement was just made:

    Although it appears to have solved most of the manufacturing “issues” associated with the 787-8’s horizontal stabilizer, Boeing has relegated Alenia to a “second source” supplier of the component for the next iteration of the Dreamliner, the 787-9.
