I told my wife that I'm never going to fly

There was a time, as the Boeing 787 made your name is actually honour. As the "Dreamliner" marketed by Boeing to be a wide-bodied aircraft and, shortly after its commissioning at the end of 2011, true made the 787 the same two dreams. They put in their weight class for a distance record by flying 19'835 kilometres without a stop, and a time record, as she circumnavigated the earth in 42 hours and 27 minutes. For this, Boeing was awarded as the American manufacturer that reached this year the greatest progress in air and space travel.

all This was a long time ago. The records long since been surpassed and the "Dreamliner" is not a dream object. Although there have been no accidents or lost aircraft, the 787, but a recent report from the New York Times, according to massive criticism from the people who build it.

Boeing had ignored a number of security concerns, writes the New York Times and relies on the internal Mails, documents and interviews with more than a dozen current and former Boeing employees. In the case of the production of the "Dreamliner" in North Charleston, South Carolina, is said to have been sloppy.


Joseph Clayton, a technician, told the newspaper that he had found after the production regularly debris in the machine. Dangerously close to the circuit of the cockpit. "I told my wife that I'm never going to fly," said Clayton. "It's just a question of security."

John Barnett, a former quality Manager, I have worked for almost three decades at Boeing, said he had found a heap of metal splinters. That sounds harmless, but the splinter was found on the wiring to the flight control. Permeate the sharp metal of the wires parts that could end the "catastrophic," said Barnett. Other employees have reported anonymously, you have also the tools and components in the vicinity of the electrical System found.

The New York Times published these allegations a few days before Boeing introduces its new quarter. On Wednesday, the aircraft manufacturer will have taken also give information as to how much the two crashes of its Boeing 737 Max financially. 346 people died in the accidents in Indonesia, and Ethiopia. Boeing's best-selling Jet that is why since March.

"Dreamliner" had the 2013 fly

security concerns had led to the "Dreamliner", the aviation authorities of the debates, a more than three-month ban on flights for the 787. 2013 had overheated in two of the machines the batteries, wherein when a parked aircraft, a fire broke out. Boeing modernized the batteries after that.

to be convened Less than a month after the second 737 crash in Ethiopia, Boeing told its employees at the plant in North Charleston an urgent Meeting. The company have a Problem, have it approved there, the customers would find random parts in your new "dream liners", which is not heard there.

the so-Called foreign body remains are a witness not a rare Problem in the construction of aircraft. The workers are instructed during the production to clean the plane, it kidney with chips, tools or other Parts to contaminate.

In the New York Times it is now, the Boeing-level management had not exerted pressure on employees to report the detected defects to the authorities. You should pay attention instead to a quick production process.

presented As a Boeing its "Dreamliner" in 2007, he was considered the most important plane. A plane is reasonable with its lightweight carbon fiber hull and its advanced technology a new Generation.

Boeing denies allegations

The aircraft manufacturer denies all mentioned in the report allegations, the scratching on the "Dreamliner"-reputation. "Boeing South Carolina produces the highest level of quality in our history. I am proud of our commitment to quality and stand behind the work carried out by our employees day for day," said Kevin McAllister, head of Boeing's commercial plane division.

His former quality Manager, sees it differently. "As a quality Manager at Boeing, they are the last line of defense before a Defect comes to the Public," said John Barnett of the New York Times. "And I've seen so far still no plane from Charleston, where I with my name for it would be that it is safe and capable of flight." (Editorial Tamedia)
