Boeing has issued a new statement on the ongoing 787 investigations. The manufacturer said it “continues to assist” the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and other government agencies in the US and Japan responsible for investigating two recent 787 incidents and “welcomes the progress being made”. Boeing said it appreciated the “dedicated substantial resources” that the regulatory and investigative agencies in the US and Japan have put into the investigations. In co-operating with the appropriate authorities, Boeing has formed teams of engineers and technical experts working to resolve the issue so the 787 fleet can be returned to flight. The company said it was not permitted to comment directly on the ongoing investigations, but expressed its “deep” regret for “the impact that recent events have had on the operating schedules of our customers and their passengers”.
