The Boeing 787: Broken Dreams l Al Jazeera Investigations
- Published: 10 September 2014
- This is a major project by the Al Jazeera Investigative Unit focusing on the 787 “Dreamliner”, the flagship passenger jet of the Boeing Company.
Our journalism reveals the deeply-held safety concerns of current and former Boeing engineers, who in some cases fear to fly on the 787, the plane they build.
We uncover allegations of on-the-job drug use, quality control problems and poor workmanship.
We explore the roots of the battery problems that led to the plane’s grounding due to safety concerns for three months from January 2013.
