Japan Airlines 787 Suffers Another Fuel Spill
Maintenance workers were draining fuel from the plane on Sunday when fuel began spilling out of the wing tip, just as it had done in Boston on Wednesday. About 26 gallons (100 liters) of fuel poured out.
JAL blamed the Boston incident on a valve that was open when should have been closed. It was not clear if Sunday’s leak was caused by the same valve.
The Boston leak came just a day after another JAL 787 caught fire in Boston.
FAA investigators announced a full inquiry into the design and construction of the 787 following the latest string of incidents.
