Boeing to Resume Dreamliner Deliveries

FAA Approves 787 Repair Procedures

Compelled by discoveries of manufacturing defects, Boeing has repeatedly halted deliveries of its 787 Dreamliner. Subject defects, first noted in the autumn of 2020, consist of flaws in the aircraft’s carbon-composite fuselage and its empennage.

Movies have been made about it, its an easily recognizable aircraft, and at a price point of $4 million or up for a used machine in ‘reasonably good condition’, it comes as no surprise that the option to have 100% of the fun at around 7% of the cost resonates with many!
