Perhaps, if you were non-stupid, instead of a non-starter. People would pay attention to you ??

Nope, blather about 6 months, on a battery rework done in February.

Yeah, I wrote rework and so did Boeing, boi.

Boeing said on Monday that the first flight test of its reworked battery system for the 787 Dreamliner went "according to plan," enabling it to move on to formal testing.

This is another lithium ion battery failure.

This failure does not bode well for the Boeing 787.

Everything Boeing says is motivated by their profit motive. The FAA is in bed with Boeing.

The failure of another lithium ion in Japan might be the end of that technology in transportation. Mitsubishi has stopped using those batteries in its cars. Remember if a car stalls it can be pulled to the side of the road.

Not so with a 787, if an airplane has a failed battery it must find a place to land ASAP. ASAP in the case of the 787 is probably 30 mins. Then you must consider is can an airplane can fly to a landing strip in 30 mins, with a burning battery.

Imagine on a 787 over the rockies and the battery melts down and then the second battery melts down. Now you have a crash with all lost.

Heads will roll at the FAA and Boeing, that old hated 3M exec McNerney and others.

You want to lose your good job?

A Boeing 787 flew for nearly two hours on Friday in a flight that wrapped up the company’s tests of modifications meant to prevent fires in its lithium-ion batteries.


The company said it would analyze the results of several weeks of testing, which included blowing up the batteries in labs, and then forward the results to the Federal Aviation Administration, probably early next week. Aviation analysts said the F.A.A., which has overseen the testing, could approve the changes later this month if no other problems surface, and the planes, which have been grounded since mid-January, could be flying again in May.

Gee, "6 months and never" moved to May ????

You American job haters/teabaggers need new watches, sundials ain't working...
