The Dreamliner did o.k.

Following up on Monday's post, the press release from Boeing states:

"The initial results of the ultimate-load test are positive. More extensive analysis and review are required before the test can be deemed a success."

I can certainly understand the need for more "analysis and review", as composites are not simple materials to understand. At the very least, it doesn't appear that the wing snapped in two, so that's a good thing.
