Train derailment damages 737 fuselages, Boeing assessing impact on deliveries

Boeing Co has said a train derailment in the US State of Montana last week has damaged a shipment of jetliner fuselages and other large parts on its way to its factories in Washington State from Spirit Aerosystems, Reuters has reported. A BNSF Railway Co train loaded with six 737 narrowbody fuselages and assemblies for its 777 and 747 widebody jets derailed in Montana while en route from Wichita on Thursday. It was not yet known if the accident might affect production of planes, the company said.
