·1 min

Federal authorities are investigating Boeing following a whistleblower’s concerns about two widebody jet models. The whistleblower, a Boeing engineer, alleges that shortcuts were taken during the manufacturing process of the 777 and 787 Dreamliner jets. The complaint, filed in January, raises concerns about the planes’ quality and potential risks as they age. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has interviewed the whistleblower as part of its investigation. Boeing has disputed the concerns regarding the 787 Dreamliner, stating that the allegations about the aircraft’s structural integrity are inaccurate. The Senate subcommittee will address the matter in a hearing next week.
