I've got an overnight leg from Dulles to Rome for a visit this week to Alenia. Needless to say my list of questions is very long after the events of the past week. Boeing has been making all the public comments about the horizontal stabilizer workmanship issues and this will be the first chance for Alenia to address it directly.
My ride tonight is a United Airlines 777-200 (ship 2372 reg?) on flight 966 to Rome. On a semi-related note, 6,300 words on 747-8 and 787 for the Farnborough Air Show edition of the magazine that comes out July 12. Once it's released, I'll have additional coverage here on the blog ahead of the biggest air show of the year that will feature the international debut of 787.
Catch you in Italia.
