Via Market Watch:
A Japan Airlines Boeing 787 flying from Boston to Tokyo Thursday turned around over Canada and flew back to Boston after a warning light came on in the cockpit, according to published reports.
The flight had crossed over Quebec and part of Hudson’s Bay before abruptly turning around, based on a flight track compiled by flightradar24.com.
Poor Boeing. I think. I’m not sure at this point if I’m sharing this news because I actually have concerns over the safety of the plane or if I just find the impact of social media on new plane production to be so interesting. For example, I flew Chicago to Helsinki on Monday, and the day prior the plane dumped fuel and returned to Chicago, but we never heard about that since it wasn’t a 787. Regardless, that Boston to Tokyo flight sure doesn’t have a good track record…
