BOEING, in spite of seemingly endless 787 Dreamliner maiden flight setbacks, has finally chosen North Charleston, South Carolina, as the location of a second production line, ending months of lobbying and speculation. Boeing Charleston already performs fabrication, assembly and systems installation for the 787 aft fuselage sections. The nearby Global Aeronautica plant, which is 50% owned by Boeing, is responsible for joining and integrating 787 fuselage sections from other structural partners. Regardless of delays the 787 order book is very strong with around 55 carriers committed to 840 aircraft. www.boeing.com/commercial
