On January 8, 2013, Japan Air flight 007, a Boeing 787 “Dreamliner” about to depart Boston for Tokyo, experienced a large fuel leak from the left wing tank before takeoff.

The crew reported a problem but appeared unaware of its nature/severity until an American Airlines crew reported the leak to the Tower. Fire crews responded to the alarm and the situation was quickly resolved. It was later determined that a total of roughly 40 gallons on fuel had spilled. It was the second serious incident involving a JAL Boeing 787 at Boston Logan Airport in two days: another aircraft had suffered an electrical fire the previous day while parked at the gate after arriving from Tokyo Narita.
