Re: The front page article about the 787 and "heavy metal"

Recommended Posts

This is meant primarily in jest, but I want to respectfully correct the author of the above-mentioned article. At Boeing, at least in my area, where we've been working on rudders and other parts of the first couple of shipsets, we affectionately refer to the aircraft as the "plastic plane", given the abundance of composite materials used in its construction. I know, I know, we all refer to those high-flying, long distance tubes that carry 250+ pax as heavy metal, but I think we're due for a paradigm shift. ;)Best regards,Jon
