Boeing (BA) -2% AH after a 787 flown by Japan Airlines makes an unscheduled landing at Boston's Logan Airport. The FAA says a maintenance message indicator pointed to a fuel pump problem, and that the landing was "a precautionary measure." Shares fell on Friday after a 787 caught fire at London's Heathrow Airport.

    Landing is spelled wrong.

     

    Also did Boeing even test their planes before releasing them? As a passenger, the last thing I want to do is ride on a sketchy airplane.

    Funny, many sat in conference rooms 8 years ago and pleaded with
    leadership not to follow this "risk Based" business model. They were told "get on the team or get out of the way", we are going to deliver the first plane in 2 years! Of course everyone knows what happened.
    But those leaders walked away with millions in bonuses and left a flawed plane behind! Those leaders are all gone now, good riddance but it will take year before the 787 ever becomes a real production airplane.

    Investors and the flying public are ultra sensitive to any issues with the 787 right now. If you only knew how many mechanical writeups, deferrals, delays, diversions and precautionary landings happened daily on Airbus, Bombardier and Embraer equipment as well as Boeing, it may put this into perspective.

    Just like the F35, the planes have gotten so complex, it takes years to debug them. I'm sure it will be a good plane one day, just not now.

    Good for you Bobby, me too. This is just another example of how sensitive the market has become. Some small glitch someplace or some Executive breaks wind and some share price drops 3%.

     

    My wife sits here in our home office with a little Scottrade account making good pin money on things like this.

     

    Don't forget Boeing has a huge cash reserve and backed up orders to the end of the decade and the Dreamliner is only a small piece of their pie.

    Commercial aircraft is only a small part of Boeing

     

    Military and space that Boeing got from North American Rockwell Douglas, McDonnell, and Hughes has kept Boeing commercial afloat since 1996

     

    and the CEO got 27 millions dollars bones and Ray Conner got 60,000 share of stocks
