Another tough headline is about the last thing Boeing needed.

The entire global aviation sector suffered in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, but Boeing has also faced production issues with its 787 Dreamliner and the grounding of the 737 Max after two deadly crashes.

A crash of a Boeing 737-800 in China last month remains under investigation, and, this week, reports surfaced of a production mishap involving perhaps the company’s most famous plane.

The Wall Street Journal reports that one of Boeing’s two next-generation Air Force Ones could have been damaged when workers attempted to shift the under-construction  jet onto jacks.
