The Boeing Company said on Tuesday that it would again delay the first flight of its new jet, the 787, the latest setback in a program that is considered crucial to the plane maker’s future.

Boeing executives said that they had found additional stress where the wings attach to the sides of the plane. Minor modifications should fix the problem, they said.

The problems were the latest in a series of delays for what promises to be the world’s most sophisticated passenger plane and a key to Boeing’s future.

This abortion is shaping up to be Boeing’s version of the De Havilland Comet!
