787 Coffee Pot Switch made by Botswanna Poison Dart and Letrick Switch Co.
So now a $200 million Airplane burns up because of a faulty $5 switch. Folks we are talking about the coffee pot warmer !!!!! Boeing outsourced the entire plane's components to the lowest bidder in third world countries that were 15 years out of the stone age. As a retired electrician I can tell you the last 10 years of my employment the majority of my time was spent replacing faulty switches and sensors and other components supplied by cheap foreign manufacturers. I would guess right about now Boeing wishes it never heard of the word " Outsourcing ". Of course the real bad news is this plane and all of the 787s are full of this junk. IT WILL BE AN ONGOING NIGHTMARE DEALING WITH THIS. I KNOW !!!!!!!!! Imagine this happening about half way between Seattle and Tokyo.
