Dreamliner hitch
November 8th, 2011 by elisa

A technical hitch on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft has been reported by All Nippon Airways (ANA). Pilots had to manually wind down the landing gear after an indicator lamp in the cockpit suggested the automated system had failed and the wheels were not properly down. The plane landed on its second attempt at Japan’s Okayama airport.

ANA said it and Boeing are investigating the problem.Boeing has refused to confirm the problem was with a hydraulic valve, only confirming that they are investigating the problem.

The aircraft is flying again, but only on domestic routes for a trial period, before being switched to international services.
