Boeing engineer Sam Salehpour calls for the grounding of all 787 jets to conduct thorough safety checks, citing concerns about potential safety risks associated with the aircraft. In a preview of an interview with “NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt,” Salehpour emphasized the need for attention to ensure the safety of the entire fleet worldwide.

Salehpour’s remarks come ahead of his scheduled testimony before Congress about safety concerns at Boeing, outlined in a complaint he filed with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) earlier this year.

The complaint raised serious concerns about Boeing’s production and quality control processes, particularly regarding the 787 and 777 jets.

Specifically, Salehpour highlighted issues with producing the 787 Dreamliner, alleging that fuselage sections are improperly fastened together, posing potential safety risks. Despite raising these concerns with Boeing management, Salehpour claimed they were disregarded.

Boeing has pushed back against Salehpour’s allegations, stating that they are inaccurate and not reflective of the comprehensive safety measures in place for the 787 Dreamliner.

The company expressed full confidence in the aircraft’s safety and emphasized that the FAA’s rigorous engineering examination has validated the aircraft’s safety.

However, Salehpour’s concerns have prompted further scrutiny of Boeing’s safety culture, with two Senate panels scheduled to hear testimony from him and other aviation experts.

A February report criticized Boeing’s safety culture as inadequate and confusing, outlining recommendations for improvement. As the debate over Boeing’s safety practices continues, Salehpour’s testimony and the findings of the report are likely to influence discussions about regulatory oversight and aircraft safety standards.
