From our News Partners at WCBD-TV:

A new  report out of Seattle claims production at the Boeing plant in North Charleston is not keeping up with orders.

A Seattle newspaper says since late last year, Boeing 7-87 Dreamliner fuselage sections have arrived in Everett, Washington with serious problems.

The report adds that the poorly done work out of North Charleston threatens to undermine the plans by Boeing to deliver 10 Dreamliners a month and fulfill the much-delayed jet program's original promise.

News 2 has reached out to Boeing regarding this report but have not received a response.
