Dreamliner Flights to Resume within Weeks

Despite the fact that they have not yet pinpointed the cause of their batteries overheating, Boeing announced on Friday that they are confident their grounded 787 Dreamliners will resume within weeks.  Boeing Co. Chief Project Engineer Michael Sinnett said they have designed a new design for their lithium-ion battery that is a multilayer approach to safeguards that will protect against the battery overheating and to ensure that any malfunctions that do occur are contained.

 

Sinnett was speaking to reporters at a hotel in Tokyo and said they could be back up and flying in week instead of months.  So far one third of test flights have been conducted and one Japanese official said that Dreamliner flights could be operating again as early as next month.  The planes were grounded by the Federal Aviation Administration and other authorities around the world in mid-January after a battery fire on a plane parked in Boston and an overheated battery that caused an emergency landing in Japan.
