(FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) – For the third time in less than a week, a problem has been reported onboard a Japan Airlines Boeing Dreamliner.
During an inspection Sunday in Tokyo, crews found a 100-gallon leak in the wing of a new 787. It's reportedly the same aircraft that had a fuel leak at Logan International Airport last week.
A fire ignited in the battery pack of an empty Dreamliner at Logan last Tuesday. On Friday, all Nippon Airways reported glitches on two of their Dreamliners, making for a total of five incidents in just a few days.
The National Transportation Safety Board is still investigating, but the U.S. government had ruled the 787 is safe to fly after looking into the problems.
Boeing's Dreamliner had been highly touted for its high-tech advancements when it was first unveiled at Logan last year.
