Boeing has done this before.  Well…Tex Johnson pulled an amazing flby in the 707 prototype back in 1955.

Boeing’s Gear Won’t Go Down Again

787 in the ANA Livery.

Right on the heels of the 767 gear mishap in Poland, now the  Boeing 787 Dreamliner is having problems. The pilots flying the two 787’s delivered to All Nippon Airways had to extend the landing manually when normal hydraulic systems failed. Boeing and ANA reported the glitches today just two weeks after the aircraft entered service in Japan.

The investigation by Boeing-Nippon and ANA continues as engineers have yet to isolate the cause of the gear extension failure on both aircraft.

Both mishap aircraft landed safely with no injuries.
