Boeing had 2 fires during the FAA flight test program for certifcation before
going into service.Boeing SAID they had fixed the problem.They did not, and 2 more fires broke out AFTER going into service -- THAT'S why the FAA cracked down extra extra hard on Boeing this second
time.Boeing had failed - perhaps even misled the FAA intentionally,
therefore the FAA cracked down with an iron fist.Add to the fact -
the 787 wasn't designed or built by Boeing -- but was farmed out to over
seas designers and builders -- Boeing had no oversight or authority to make any
changes.It makes me curious what other dirty little secrets got
swept under the rug?....
