Boeing denounces Al Jazeera documentary on 787 Dreamliner

In addition to chronicling some of the 787 program’s well-known production problems and the overheating batteries that led to its three-month grounding, the documentary includes hidden-camera video of workers at the company’s South Carolina plant criticizing their co-workers and the planes they produce.

I wonder what a year-long Al Jazeera investigation of Airbus, CNN, Fox, or <insert company of preference here> would come up with.

In my experience with Journalists, they are too ignorant to ever address anything even remotely technical without being just wrong. Like chickens that can only cluck 'ain't it awful' they have zero ability to understand the issues.

Here is the Al Jazeera Investigates video:

Yeah, they have got to get that thing up and running good, bug free, and that is difficult with a brand new plane. You have to go way back to the 767/757 development days to get anywhere close but even those had existing technology to work off of.
