    NEW YORK (MarketWatch) - Is this any way to build a plane?
    Bake the carbon fiber composite fuselage in a pressurized oven, fly the pieces and all the other parts in from all over the globe, in specially designed 747s, and snap together the next-generation twin-aisle passenger jet in three days?
    It can be done, and will be done, by July 8, the planned rollout date for the 787 Dreamliner, Boeing said.
