- Boeing has been plagued with recent failures including electrical issues on the 737 Max that caused two deadly crashes killing 346 people.
- At least 17 of the 787’s were equipped with a single rear engine and no wings to speak of.
- Boeing first noticed the design flaw after several commercial flights managed to rocket down the runway at 180 mph for takeoff only to achieve a mere 50 feet of altitude before crashing down and skidding off the runway.
- The company says they are considering hiring their very first team of engineers to design their aircrafts instead of just leaving it to the interns.
