Wing Cracks Lead To Dreamliner Production Delay - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

Boeing's much-delayed 787 Dreamliner has hit another production snafu. Hairline cracks have been discovered in the wings of some 787s that are being built. The Chicago-based manufacturer said none of the 122 jets already flown by airlines around the world are affected. Boeing said that roughly 40 airplanes might be affected and that it will take one to two weeks to inspect each plane and fix any cracks found on shear ties on a wing rib.
