Is Dreamliner Teething or Media Overreacting?January 14, 2013
There have been several reported incidents of problems with Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner over the past couple weeks including two more recent incidents in Japan. So the big question is, is this normal or is the media overreacting because they prefer sensationalism over science? Boeing’s top 787 engineer said that the problem rates for the 787 are no higher than those for their highly successful 777 and there have been no reports yet of anything happening in flight. So, what do you think? Is the 787 just teething, or is the media making mountains out of molehills?
