Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) shares are trading about 7% lower on more than its normal day’s trading volume as of 11 a.m. Eastern. The aerospace giant announced this morning that first flight of the 787 Dreamliner will be postponed due to a need to reinforce an area within the side-of-body section of the aircraft.

In the company’s ongoing conference call, the company said there are only a small number of changes engineers plan to make to the sides of the planes, and the modifications should allow it to go ahead with its flight test program. The company expects to have an updated timetable within the coming weeks.
