Sudden slip of Leonardo on the stock exchange. The stock, which was traveling fairly well, dropped sharply and in a few minutes and was placed in liquidity auction. Leonardo then closed the session without 7% between very intense and nervous exchanges. The reason for the fall could be attributable to the indiscretion according to which the US giant Boeing he would have found defects on parts of his 787 Dreamliner, the most technologically advanced of the fleet, built in composite materials that give it lightness while reducing consumption. The Boeing stock is also down, but more contained it loses about 1.4% on Wall Street.

The problems encountered by Boeing would concern some parts in titanium which are weaker than they should be on 787 built in the last three years, report people familiar with the story. Defects could relate components produced by the Italian group. “There is an investigation underway, but we have found that not this one it does not represent an immediate danger for the safety of the fleet currently in service, ”said a Boeing spokesperson. The group has already had other problems with deliveries of this model with orders still pending reaching $ 25 billion.
