P100 Power Distribution Panel after Laredo emergency landing

“The risk to the company is not this battery, even though this is really bad right now,” said one 787 electrical
engineer, who asked not to be identified. “The real problem is the power panels." Unlike earlier Boeing jets, he said,
the innards of the 787 power distribution panels — which control the flow of electricity to the plane’s many
systems — are “like Radio Shack,” with parts that are “cheap, plastic and prone to failure.”
