Dreamliner test flight success

A Boeing Dreamliner takes to the skies for a test flight that brings it a crucial stage closer to getting back in the air. The aircraft took off near Seattle on Friday to prove a new system to stop the plane's lithium-ion batteries overheating or catching fire is working. When it touched down nearly two hours later Boeing said the flight had been uneventful and straightforward. The words appear non-committal but the flight concludes testing after little more than three weeks on the battery fix. Now regulators in the U.S., Japan and Europe have to decide if they're satisfied Boeing's solution is safe. Industry officials and airlines which operate the Dreamliner have said they expect it back in the air by May at the latest.Auteur: reutersTags: closer Boeings flight success getting airliner Chapman reports back step Gepost: 06 april 2013Beoordeling: 0.0Stemmen: 0]]>
