Boeing When Will It Be Honest With Itself?

Boeing (BA) has another design flaw in the 787 according to the WSJ. The tail cone assembly does not hold up to extreme temperatures. Apparently the design flaw was identified in test flights last Dec 2009. The story only comes out in May 2010. The project is complicated and not everything will go smoothly. But a five month delay just stokes the fires of doubt. The 787 should not be doubted. Boeing is having a hard time being honest with itself. Remember these moments if there is an aviation disaster.
