Today, Simple Flying put out an article about Boeing’s admittance of falsified documents relating to an Air Canada 787 Dreamliner. The article read that the Dreamliner, C-GHPQ, the one which had to make an emergency landing in Anchorage following a fuel leak on February 10, 2015, had falsified records of manufacturing. The records showed that work had been completed when it hadn’t.
Boeing disclosed the issue to the FAA themselves after finding out about the incident. Transport Canada hasn’t been too involved as the falsified records fell under FAA’s jurisdiction.
Air Canada has stated that they have checked all of their Dreamliners and have no evidence that any others have similar issues. They’ve also said that their aircraft regularly undergo thorough inspections.
In light of this, it’s not looking good for Boeing. Considering the ongoing issues with the 737 MAX, and the plant in South Carolina, this is definitely not what Boeing wants to have released.
