I think from my records which I'm not allowed to post I only have evidence of 1 B787 that needed it's fuel tanks to under going a aqueous wash shortly after it was built due to FOD. That was in Everett. Besides Qatar not accepting any Charleston birds, namely due to paint issues nothing more, I have...Jump to post

From my records THREE are stuck on the ground
9V-SCD since 30/3
9V-SCE since 31/3
9V-SCI since 2/4
9V-SCA was grounded from 31/3 until today 4/4. I presume that she has had engine replacements carried out.
hopefully an updated list
The A380 is too big too late. Plus airport infrastructure has to be upgraded to accommodate her it wasn't a good move by Airbus.
The other issue is life span of these giants. We have seen two scrapped already and they where only around ten years old
Got my first car (1987 Ford Fiesta) it was ten years old. Went for a mad drive and got totally lost. Ended up by what I thought was a field with lights in it. Parked up and went to look at why this field had these daft lights in it. Queue the 747 about 100ft over my head. Thinking it was crashing an...Jump to post
I run a website (I won't link it here in case I'm not allowed) and I am interested in logging each and every flight of each Boeing 787 series aircraft.
Does anyone know of a way this can be achieved? I have them logged from my own radar device but that only covers north-western UK.
Which 787 was it? The reg I mean I wonder if she's been up today?Jump to post
I would say both are written offJump to post
And why has AI grounded 3 dreamliners is this the RR issue As noted, they are RR-powered. In the past, AI has grounded frames to pull parts off them to keep others in service (rather than buy spares direct) so this might be the case here. Like VT-ANI? http://www.b787register.co.uk/airframes/airfram...Jump to post
I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't significant damage to the 787 wing structure. Remember the BA 747 wing that hit a building, didn't look too bad but it twisted the wing roots. As this isn't the first major wing damage on a 787 this is the first mid wing damage. It will be interesting to see i...Jump to post
