Will you die tomorrow ?? Hopefully......

Of course, your guessing ability is pretty stupid, since you said it wouldn't fly again, right ???

Will the 787 fly passengers ever again?

If it does and there is anther fire that may be the end of it.

MAYBE it will crash into YOUR house.

Being that you are in Seattle it makes more sense.

When an airplane burns up flight paths don't matter.

Planes crash wherever they end up.

If a 787 is at 37,000 feet and starts on fire it will crash wherever it ends up.

How many passenger jets that have crashed have followed a preplanned flight path to where it crashed.

Being that the 787 is test flying in Washington state it's more likely to crash in Seattle than Minnesota.

It's designed to fly internationally, so it's most likely to crash in water, if at all... You must wear a very small hat size.

BTW the solution proposed by Boeing is lunatic, someone in industry called it a reverse Rube Goldberg contraption.

http://leehamnews.wordpress.com/2013/02/25/od... ...

Think about it, 50 brand new BMWs of their brand new model leave the factory floor and in no time at all batteries in two of them catch fire, one is left a pile of carbon only, in the second the short current burns through massive metal crossbars capable normally of carrying hundreds of amperes of current.

Keep in mind that the 787 battery carried roughly 4 time more energy that the one in your car. Boeing solution, put them (four car equivalents!) in a thick stainless steel box (before they are in a thin cheap metal enclosure), separate them with a thin pieces of ceramic and provide a vent to the outside just in case they catch the fire again.

Who is his right mind would accept anything that stupid, this is creating a bomb, a granate basically, from 4 car batteries effectively. Have you seen what happens when you shortcircuit a fully loaded car battery even a single one not four combined together? At least in cars you can stop quickly and run outside, no so easy 10k feet above.

No way American Pilot Association will go with this idiocy!

Here are some of Boeings problems as I see it:

1. Technically advanced Boeing was taken over by a less advanced company.
2. Engineers are no longer advanced to management, bean counters are hired instead
3. Management offices moved to Chicago, away from activity center, Seattle, Everett, etc
4. Boeing farmed out too much of the airplane, departing from successful past vertical integration for all but engines and a few other components.
5. Boeing suspended physical drawings and physical prototyping in favor of computer CAD and modeling
6. Most Important: Boeing management screwed up the battery purchase interface. The battery BMS (battery management system) and charger should have been done by one vendor, so that that vendor would have complete responsibility for the "battery system" With good BMS, there is never a good excuse for battery to be overcharged, over discharged, or over heated.

I wonder how many other problems are buried in this plane's design, which have not surfaced yet, or if Boeing still has the management and engineering skills to overcome the battery issue.
