What’s going on at Alcoa? Removing temporaries causing damage?
“Working with Alcoa on a daily, hourly basis to get the fasteners we need. The set up puts out one wad of bolts at a time. Substitute (flightworthy) fasteners being used, they however add weight to the aircraft.”
“700something fasteners left to install.”
What type of new tests for 787?
Composite material testing. Standard certification testing is ahead of us. More electric architecture is being tested with really good results.”
