Read the 787 windshield crack incident on and you’ll find an explanation why they are not covering it.

It’s plastered all over the rest of the press, Max. Maybe that particular site decided not to run it?

Whatever your thoughts on the Dreamliner, it’s having a bit of a troubled entry into service!

I’ve checked on but nothing about this news at this time… strange.

Anyway imho the 787 is one of the most beautiful plane 🙂
