Boeing Dreamliner Continues To Not Be So Dreamy

I really wanted to fly on one of these things too.

A Boeing 787 Dreamliner operated by All Nippon Airways Co. made an emergency landing at Takamatsu airport in southern Japan on Wednesday morning, the airline and government agencies said, in the latest incident to hit the aircraft.

A spokesman for ANA said the landing was made after an alarm indicated a problem with batteries used in the plane. An official at Takamatsu airport said smoke was detected, but had no further details.


It has been such an inauspicious debut for the luxury liner that the FAA has decided to review the manufacturing process.
