Published:
These events this week led the Federal Aviation Administration to announce Friday it will conduct a review of the design, manufacture and assembly of Boeing 787s in Everett and North Charleston, S.C.
After a fire on Monday, mechanical issues that would normally not be newsworthy found their way into headlines worldwide.

•Monday, Jan. 7: A Japan Airlines 787 catches fire while parked at Boston's Logan International Airport. An initial investigation traces the cause back to a lithium ion battery for the 787's auxiliary power unit.
Monday, Jan. 7: A computer glitch grounds a United Airlines 787 for 24 hours, according to CNN.
Tuesday, Jan. 8: A different Japan Airlines 787 leaks 40 gallons of fuel in Boston. The airline said one of four valves connecting the center and left main fuel tanks was open. That valve was deactivated and the flight was cleared to depart later Tuesday.
Wednesday, Jan. 9: All Nippon Airways of Japan cancels a domestic 787 flight after a computer wrongly indicates a problem with the 787's brakes.
Friday, Jan. 11: Two other 787s operated by All Nippon Airways experience glitches. Cracks are found in the windshield of one 787, which was grounded for repairs. And a small amount of oil is found to be leaking from the left engine of another 787 during a flight from Miyazaki to Tokyo.
