Boeing has announced the opening of a new 787 vertical fin assembly line at Salt Lake City, Utah, with production slated to begin next month.
Operated by Boeing Fabrication, the new assembly line will build vertical tail fin assembles for all 787s to be assembled at Boeing’s South Carolina plant.
The Salt Lake facility currently conducts fabrication for a range of Boeing aircraft, with the plant expected to deliver its first vertical fin to Boeing South Carolina during the fourth quarter of 2011.
