    787 good news

    U.S. safety regulators are poised to approve within days a plan to allow Boeing Co to begin flight tests of the 787 Dreamliner with a fix for its volatile batteries, a critical step towards returning the grounded aircraft to service, two sources familiar with the matter said on Wednesday.

    The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is expected to sign off on a "certification plan" allowing Boeing to carry out the flight tests to determine if authorities can lift a flight ban that sent shockwaves around the airline industry seven weeks ago.

    "You could see the 'cert plan' approved in the next few days," one of the sources said.

    • they didn't fix the problem............ putting a band aid on it............ fireproof box.......vent the fumes outside........ are you kidding me??????? .. what a joke. i wouldn't fly on that plane for at least a year. FAA is in bed with Boeing. Remember, two days before the grounding,, the head of the FAA said all was okay...........
