This is a classic example of the fox guarding the chicken coop. Boeing is sneaking around gathering info on a secret flight test, one day late BTW.

Now a presentation flight for the FAA, owned by Chicago/Obama. Note in the following article where it says the new metal case will prevent potentially flamable stuff from leaving the box. HOWEVER the electrolyt in the 787 batteries is famable.

It's famible or flamable ??? OK.... I would say it's NOT FLAMMABLE, because of the safeguards, but you're the raving nut-so.... LMAOROFU~! BTW- Electrolyte ???

Thanks for the spell check, you have found your calling. You can get a job as a spellchecker. No wait computers do that for free.

787 may be restricted to fly over land ONLY.

This would be a serious blow to the airplane designed to fly long distances over water and remote areas like the poles.

The need for the 787 was based on long haul trips with a midsized plane.

Once the FAA restricts the 787 to shorter flights over land with the ability to make a emergency landing when the next battery fire occurs the 787 will be of no use to airlines.

Would you buy a car that could only be driven on freeways for less than 10 miles?

Of course not, would you fly in a plane that is restricted to flying short routes because it might catch fire and need to make an emergency landing?

The world's biggest buyer of 787s, airplane leasing company International Lease Finance Corp., said Thursday it expects the first Dreamliner delivery this summer.

It had been eyeing a spring delivery for the jets, which have been grounded for more than two months. ILFC president Fred Cromer added at an aviation summit in Washington D.C. that it expects to see the clearance process at the Federal Aviation Administration will "go quickly." Boeing earlier this week put the 787 through one flight test that went "according to plan." it expects to conduct another soon.

At the same event, Boeing Co Chief Executive Jim McNerney on Thursday urged regulators reviewing battery problems on the company's grounded 787 passenger jet to let the plane back into service, saying he was confident the redesigned battery was safe.

He would not specify when he expected the jet to be flying customers again other than saying "sooner rather than later."

The Federal Aviation Administration and its administrator Michael Huerta "have been champs here," McNerney told a U.S. Chamber of Commerce aviation summit in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.

"They have put us through our paces and they have America's best interests in mind. They have the safety of the public in mind as I hope we do, which I think at this point means let's get this thing back into service and get on with it."

You are obviously determined to go to the grave a know-nothing.

Don't worry- you'll make it.

Every time a 787 flies over, I'll think of you and laugh my ass off !!!!

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 ??? Poor non-sense, I feel so bad about your losing/broken record posts.... LMAOROTFU~!2

The FAA approved the design of the 787 using lithum ion batteries.

That is the first mistake.

Now the birds are roosting sheeting all over Boeing and the FAA.

Give it one more chance. IF one crashes that will be the end of it. The American flying public have become spoiled with no fatality crashes for a long time, a tragic crash will end the 787 program.
