Al-Jazeera America’s Broken Dreams documentary

Staff Pick

When you invite the world’s largest aircraft manufacturer into your backyard, you have to be ready for the criticism that it’ll attract. Last year, Al-Jazeera America dropped a multi-part documentary examining the North Charleston Dreamliner program from top to bottom. AJA got employees at the plant to tell an undercover informant that they wouldn’t fly on a Dreamliner, reported corner-cutting by Boeing quality control, and even had a Boeing exec walk out on an interview. Boeing doesn’t seem to be suffering too much from the coverage though; it beat its delivery goal for the year, and North Charleston recently finished its first 787-9, a larger-format Dreamliner.
