Hi. After today's IBU class, I found a news article on B787.
The technology method of this aircraft is called "fly-by-wire" and the maker (Boeing) is planning to use this technology to another plane "737MAX"--smaller plane which they are developing now. They have already received 1,000 orders (more orders than B787) so that they must solve the problem a.s.a.p. But most interesting thing I found from the article is the dreamliner (JAL) contains TOTO "washlet" :)

That is really interesting.... Fly by wire sounds a little worrying, don't you think? Having the system totally controlled electronically, rather than manually will take a huge leap of faith...
Tks for leaving a comment here... keep up the good work...
