Eight 787 Dreamliners fuselage failures

More trouble for Boeing, now with the 787 dreamliner

More trouble for Boeing, now with the 787 dreamliner.

Several airlines operating Boeing’s 787 Dreamliners aircraft have recalled eight of them after two manufacturing problems were discovered in their fuselage section. The North American manufacturer announced last Friday that an investigation had been initiated to find the cause of these failures and that it had brought the fact to the attention of the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The affected planes belong to the airlines United Airlines, Singapore Airlines and Air Canada. Boeing told these companies to remove them from service, according to The Air Current publication, to which the US manufacturer confirmed “that it had identified two different manufacturing problems in the union of certain sections of the aft fuselage and that, in combination , result in a condition that does not meet our design standards. “

“We determined that eight delivered aircraft are affected by both problems and, consequently, must be reviewed and repaired before continuing operations,” a Boeing spokesman told the publication.

This new problem is the first publicly known case in the aircraft’s nine-year life in which a structural defect has caused Boeing to immediately withdraw it from service. The 787 fleet was immobilized for three months in 2013 after the discovery of overheating of the lithium-ion batteries.
