Watch for the coolant sensor to leak in next few days
A cooling system that can cool the coolants in an aircraft is a key part of the plane’s safety, but a recent test has shown that the coolers are leaking, according to ABC News.
The cooling system is used to cool air flowing through a plane.
The coolant can move around inside the plane and potentially leak if not properly installed.
The cooling system can be a significant part of a plane’s airworthiness.
“They’re not working properly,” said Dr. James Felt, a certified commercial airframe technician and a certified airframe airframe mechanic.
“We don’t know exactly how long it’s been leaking, but it’s not working well,” he said.
“If it does leak it’s going to cause a serious accident.”
Dr. Felt said it is extremely rare for an airframe to leak coolant in an airplane.
He said the coolancy system is an essential part of keeping the plane running and flying safely.
Dr. Bruce Buehner, an airworthiness engineer with the FAA, said the FAA is aware of the problem and is working with the manufacturer.
“There’s been no issues with this in any other airplane,” he told ABC News’ “20/20.”
“We’re investigating it to make sure it’s an issue we can fix and that we can replace the cooling system, and we’re not going to delay that,” he added.
The coolant leak is the second in just three months.
On Feb. 16, an airplane was involved in a crash at San Francisco International Airport that killed all nine people on board.
A test flight was delayed until March 11.
The FAA said in a statement that the cooling unit in the Boeing 777-200ER has been upgraded to a new cooling system.
Boeing said in its statement that it is working to resolve the issue.
The airworthiness inspector in San Francisco says it is continuing to investigate.
The Boeing 777 has more than 20,000 flights on its fleet and is used by airlines from all over the world.
