London: A Delhi-bound British Airways flight returned to London on Tuesday after it suffered a technical glitch. As per news agency Reuters, The flight, BA143, reportedly encountered a technical snag after 40 minutes of its take.
The flight took off from London's Heathrow Airport. It was being operated by Boeing 787-8 aircraft which is 10 years old. The technical glitch occurred when it was flying over Brussels. All passengers are reportedly safe.
In April this year, a whistleblower highlighted that issues in Boeing's 787 Dreamliner planes. The New York Times had reported that the engineer, Sam Salehpour, revealed that the model has structural failings that could eventually cause it to break apart. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is investigating the claims, as per the report.
Sam Salehpour, according to the NY Times report, described the infamous door plug blow-out on Boeing 737 Max plane flown by Alaska Airlines in January as a 'watershed moment'. According to the media outlet, he has worked at the company for more than 10 years and has sent his allegations to the FAA.
He claims that a change in the construction process for the planes had given room for shortcuts, leading to the 'plane's fuselage to be improperly fastened together'. He further warned that these parts could fall apart after a number of flights.
