Boeing Backlog Starting to Change

Everyone in the composites world is keeping a close eye on Boeing. As many aerospace technologies slowly trickle down to the mainstream, the utilization of lightweight composites in the new 787 Dreamliner will help with the adoption of composites in many other industries.

It is no surprise that an unnamed carrier has reduced their 787 order by 15 planes, (valued at $2.6 billion). As the economic and financial difficulties continue, I believe this is the precursor to many more dropped or reduced Boeing and Airbus orders.
