New Boeing assembly line in Utah

Boeing opened a new assembly line in Salt Lake City, Utah, where it will make the vertical fin for its long-delayed 787 Dreamliner.

The line will be operated by Boeing Fabrication and will make vertical fins for planes built at Boeing's new 787 assembly plant in South Carolina.

Production on the new Salt Lake City line is set to begin in July. The plant plans to deliver its first vertical fin to Boeing South Carolina during the fourth quarter of 2011.

The 787 is about three years behind schedule, but is set for first delivery to All Nippon Airways in the third quarter of this year.
