Fresh concerns for Boeing with American authorities opening a new investigation into the beleaguered aircraft manufacturer.

According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, the jet maker recently disclosed that its employees may have skipped some inspections on 787 Dreamliners and falsified records.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is now investigating the claims as Boeing reported it was now reinspecting all 787 jets still on the manufacturing line.

The FAA said that Boeing had come forward “voluntarily” last month to warn that it “may not have completed” inspections required to confirm electrical safeguards where the wings join the main body of the 787 Dreamliner, a large jet often used on international flights, according to the BBC.

“The FAA is investigating whether Boeing completed the inspections and whether company employees may have falsified aircraft records,” it said.

“As the investigation continues, the FAA will take any necessary action – as always – to ensure the safety of the flying public.”

It’s the latest incident to involve Boeing who have been in the spotlight since a door blew off 737 Max 9 plane in January.
