    Indeed, I look forward to a time when positive news will prevail about the B787 Dreamliner.

    Looks like it, especially since Boeing has reported that they found cracks in the wings on the planes, while still in the factory. :oops:

    Hopefully this won't turn into Boeing's bad dream, and the plane can settle into regular reliable service worldwide. Maybe too much outsourcing, but I guess they couldn't handle producing all the components themselves for such a complex aircraft. Is it time to start from scratch and make a larger stretched DC-3?

    It almost certainly will at some point. Every new plane has it's share of problems. It might take a while for that to happen, but it eventually will. I don't buy into all this alarmist talk about the 787 being a bust. If they ground the 787 again, that'll be something to pay attention to.

    Is this a hydraulics problem or a lube oil problem? The article mentions lube oil... which if my rudimentary understanding of jet airliner systems, hydraulic and lube oils are different products and separate systems. Misleading or confusing, depending on the situation. And if it is a lube oil problem that would more likely fall to the engine manufacturer than Boeing... but the blame will be misconstrued by the media and the companies involved. :confused:
