Dreamliner makes emergency landing

(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) A Boeing 787 operated by All Nippon Airways Co made an emergency landing in Takamatsu in western Japan on Wednesday (January 16) after smoke appeared in the Dreamliner cabin. The Dreamliner flight bound for Haneda Airport near Tokyo left Yamaguchi Airport in Western Japan shortly after 8:00 a.m. JST (2300 GMT Tuesday, January 15) but made an emergency landing at 8:45 after smoke appeared in the cockpit. According to ANA officials, all 129 passengers and 8 crew were evacuated safety. The runways for Takamatsu airport were still closed after the accident. The incident comes on top of a slew of recent problems with Boeing's new Dreamliner aircraft. The sophisticated new plane, the world's first mainly carbon-composite airliner, suffered two fuel leaks, a battery fire, a wiring problem, brake computer glitch and cracked cockpit window last week. Japan is the biggest market so far for the Dreamliner, with JAL and local rival All Nippon Airways Co flying 24 of the 50 Dreamliners delivered to date.
