It was reported last month that repairs are needed in the tail sections of some of Boeing’s new 787s. But the company says there is no immediate safety concern and that the planes will keep flying. Boeing has delivered five of the planes since September and all of them went to Japan’s All Nippon Airways. It was reported that Boeing has had to rework dozens of 787s that rolled off its assembly line. The company said that the most recent issue involves shims, which act as spacers between the 787′s skin and the parts that support it. A spokeswoman says Boeing is still inspecting planes to see how many will need to be repaired. The issue was first reported by aerospace news website Flightglobal.com.
