Boeing delivered its Triple Seven Number 500

Boeing delivered its Triple Seven Number 500 | Boeing | Scoop.it

Milestone deliveries are always special. And the one today in Everett was a proud moment for everyone who has ever been associated with the 777 program.

Boeing delivered our 500th 777-300ER to Emirates this morning. Ten years after its first delivery, the airplane still remains the market leader and a passenger favorite.

Japan Air grounds a Boeing 787 after battery problem

Japan Air grounds a Boeing 787 after battery problem | Boeing | Scoop.it

(Reuters) - Japan Airlines Co Ltd said it temporarily grounded one of its Boeing 787 Dreamliners at Tokyo's Narita International Airport on Tuesday after white smoke was spotted outside the plane and a battery cell appeared to be leaking.

The incident raised fresh concerns about the 787's safety and reliability almost exactly one year after the global Dreamliner fleet was grounded by regulators following the overheating of two batteries, although Boeing said design changes made as a result had worked as planned.

Not so easy to be the First !... 

Blake Carrico's curator insight, January 15, 2014 3:58 PM

I chose this insight because this shows how easily something small can get past the inspections and everything. This is obviously not good at all for Boeings business, and im sure many engineers or mechanists will be scolded and or possibly fired.
