Boeing 787 engine fire extinguisher problem traced to UTC

“Improperly configured” engine fire extinguisher bottles discovered last week on several All Nippon Airways (ANA) Boeing 787s were traced to the part’s producer, Kidde Aerospace, a United Technologies Corp. (UTC) subsidiary.


UTC conceded the error on the part and said it has been corrected. All 787 operators were expected to complete inspections within days.

Boeing said in a statement, “An engineering review has determined that this improper configuration does not present an immediate safety of flight issue because the bottles are not the only means of fire extinguishing for engines and there are multiple redundancies within the fire extinguishing system.”
