Reuters reported that “Boeing Co’s South Carolina plant, where it assembles 787 wide-body jetliners, was set to reopen operations on Sunday night following a lifting of evacuation orders for coastal areas threatened by deadly storm Florence, a Boeing spokesperson said on Sunday.” Boeing “had suspended operations at the North Charleston plant on Tuesday and flown several 787 Dreamliners from the South Carolina factory across the country to an airport near Boeing’s wide-body plant in Everett, Washington, north of Seattle.” The “hurricane-related closure came as Boeing grapples with production logjams due to shortages of parts from suppliers that have rippled across the aerospace industry.” (Image Credit: By Mydogtryed - Own work, CC BY-SA 3.0 | Wikimedia Commons)
