US regulators to make 787 Dreamliners inspection mandatory

The US Federal Aviation Administration has said it plans to make it mandatory for airlines to inspect the emergency devices on their Boeing 787 Dreamliners after a fire erupted on the plane last week while it was parked at London's Heathrow Airport, LA Times has reported. The agency said it "would ask operators to inspect for proper wire routing and any signs of wire damage or pinching, as well as inspect the battery compartment for unusual signs of heating or moisture." Boeing said it has provided customers with instructions giving them the required information to meet the regulatory guidelines.
