What is particularly worrisome, Wood says, is that Boeing's computer models did not predict the stress. But in order to get its new plane legally certified, Boeing must prove to the Federal Aviation Administration that its predictive modeling works, Wood said


Heidi wood - Morgan Stanley analyst is predicting the very earliest the 787 will enter servide will be 2011 , but thats in light of the latest failures in the aircraft!
