Aircraft maker Boeing announced that it has halted production of fuselage sections for its 787 Dreamliner aircraft after discovering some problems in it. The company said it found microscopic wrinkles in the skin of the 787’s fuselage and asked Italian supplier Alenia Aeronautica to stop making the sections in June, reports the Associated Press.
In June this year, Boeing postponed the plane’s deliveries for the fifth time. Orders for 72 of the planes were canceled this year through August 11, says AP.
