Oops Who Forgot To Run Software Update On Their Boeings

The GPS data rollover bug seems to have passed with relatively few hardline grabbing issues but that's not to say that everyone survived unscathed.

There were a number of reports of the GPS Navigation Systems on various Boeing 777 and 787 aircraft being affected. At least one KLM 777 flight and a large number of China Airlines 777 and 787 aircraft were grounded due to the issues whilst technicians updated the software. A Shanghai Airlines 787 was also reportedly affected.

In all the reported cases so far, the GPS systems were supplied by Honeywell. They issued a service update on the issue but it appears to state that the systems would not be impacted by the date rollover so someone is going to be in trouble!
