How and why must be determined who is at fault or it's leaky fuel tank. Air Canada had the Gimli Glider experience in one of the first Boeing 767s.

true, air canada did have a 767 turn into a glider, but that was due to a question of litres being counted as equivalent gallons, and the mechanical measurement of the fuel tanks using sticks of wood. And the blind luck of the co-pilot being an experienced glider pilot and the fact he had flown in and out of the very airport that was used to safely end the powerless flight. The dispatchers on this united flight have a lot of 'splanning to do here
