FAA demands new precautions for some Boeing 787 landings after new 5G launches


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said on Friday it would require Boeing 787 operators to take extra precautions when landing on wet or snow-covered runways at airports where new service without thread will be deployed starting next week.

The FAA said 5G interference could prevent engines and braking systems from entering landing mode, which could prevent a plane from stopping on the runway. The directive asks crews “to be aware of this risk and to adopt specific safety procedures when landing on these runways”. It affects 137 US aircraft and 1,010 worldwide.
