WASHINGTON- Federal air safety regulators are proposing a massive fine against one the nation’s leading airplane manufacturers.

The FAA proposed a $2 million fine against Boeing.

Officials say the company allegedly failed to maintain quality control regarding certain parts for its 777 aircraft production.

According to the FAA, Boeing discovered it had been installing fasteners that didn’t meet safety standards.

Investigators say they stopped using the fasteners immediately but some of the underlying concerns persisted.

Authorities claim Boeing submitted plans to fix the problem but missed the deadline.

The FAA says Boeing finally implemented a plan to address the issue more than two years after first learning about the problem.
