Submission + - Federal Aviation Administration To Investigate Boeing 787 after safety scares (faa.gov)

Richard_at_work writes: "The FAA announced this morning that they were initiating an indepth investigation into both the design and construction of the Boeing 787 aircraft after several safety scares in the past few months. The Boeing 787 has been in operation for less than 2 years, but in that time it has seen fuel leaks related to build quality issues, electrical problems and a fire related to the new all-electrical approach.

The review will involve a broader investigation than those systems involved in recent scares, and is a significant event for both Boeing as the manufacturer and the FAA."
