Agreed AND the FAA sucks for allowing the 787 to even use lithium ion batteries.

There have been documented problems with the 787 and Boeing has been allowed to proceed with production EVEN THOU these problems have been documented.

And now the 787 hits prime time and the SAME problems surface. Boeing HAD an opportunity to capture a large market with the 787 now they are playing damage control and attempting to get a band aid solution that would allow the plane to fly even thou the batteries are burning.

Again I'll pass on flying on an airplane that is designed to burn and hopefully make a safe emergency landing.

You ride it??

The vents are designed to vent gasses and heat... IT PREVENTS BATTERY BURN...

You realize all cars burn gas, right ???

Except a firefighter was burned in Boston when attempting to put out the fire in a 787 battery.

The 787 is doomed to have a difficult path to once again flying passengers. Maybe it will shine as a cargo plane??

The FAA and Boeing has ONE SHOT at getting the 787 fixed right.

If they fly it and it failes ONCE MORE it will be the end of the 787 project.

Especially since the first 2 fires didn't crash a plane. The law of averages will catch up and the next battery failure may cause a fatal crash. IF that were to occur it would certinaly mean an end to the 787 program.

FAA allowed the 787 to fly without robust tests because the FAA is controlled by Obama and Boeing is a Chicago/thug company.

Read how the FAA has delegated its duties to airplane makers kile Boeing.

And failure of Boeing to run destructive tests on the 787s batteries.

I'm not flying any burnliners.

Boeing (NYSE: BA) has received approval from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the company's plan to test and certify improvements to the 787's battery system. Successful completion of each step within the plan will result in the FAA's approval to resume commercial 787 flights.

"Our top priority is the integrity of our products and the safety of the passengers and crews who fly on them," said Boeing Chairman, President and CEO Jim McNerney. "Our team has been working around the clock to understand the issues and develop a solution based on extensive analysis and testing following the events that occurred in January. Today's approval from the FAA is a critical and welcome milestone toward getting the fleet flying again and continuing to deliver on the promise of the 787," he said.

Ray Conner, president and chief executive officer of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said that the company's focus has been on developing a permanent resolution.

"Working with internal and external experts in battery technology, we have proposed a comprehensive set of solutions designed to significantly minimize the potential for battery failure while ensuring that no battery event affects the continued safe operation of the airplane," said Conner.

"Our proposal includes three layers of improvements. First, we've improved design features of the battery to prevent faults from occurring and to isolate any that do. Second, we've enhanced production, operating and testing processes to ensure the highest levels of quality and performance of the battery and its components. Third, in the unlikely event of a battery failure, we've introduced a new enclosure system that will keep any level of battery overheating from affecting the airplane or being noticed by passengers," Conner said.

Design feature improvements for the battery include the addition of new thermal and electrical insulation materials and other changes. The enhanced production and testing processes include more stringent screening of battery cells prior to battery assembly. Operational improvements focus on tightening of the system's voltage range. A key feature of the new enclosure is that it ensures that no fire can develop in the enclosure or in the battery. Additional details of the new design will be provided by Boeing in the days ahead.

Boeing made its certification plan proposal to the FAA in late February. Today the agency agreed that the proposed changes and the detailed test plans address the conditions that resulted in the suspension of 787 operations.

Gee, late February, THAT'S WHAT I SAID, right dummies ???

FAA approved the 787 to fly and then grounded it.
