  • There’s been some talk in mainstream media lately about the 787 fire switches.
🤦‍♂️
Back in February, Boeing identified an issue with the locking mechanisms that hold the fire switches in the normal down position.
👀
A fire switch is locked until a fire is detected, or the fuel control switch is set to cutoff. It can also be unlocked by pushing the override button.
🔐
So what’s this issue then? In short, the unlocking solenoid or associated components can become jammed, making it impossible to pull the fire switch.
😱
This is obviously really bad news... if you have an engine fire. On any other flight you wouldn’t even be aware of it.
😊
The FAA has issued an AD - Airworthiness Directive, that stipulates testing of the system on a regular basis. I haven’t seen any numbers on how many faulty fire switches have been found so far in those tests, but I assume not many.
