Federal Aviation Administration said on Wednesday a review of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner found the plane was “soundly designed” and met its “safety level.” The joint FAA-Boeing review did make seven recommendations for further improvements in Boeing processes and FAA oversight, FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said in a telephone news briefing. The review was initiated after a battery fire occurred aboard a 787 in January 2013 at Boston’s Logan International Airport. The plane has also suffered a series of mishaps with brakes, fuel lines, electrical panels, hydraulics, and other systems.
