After several reported problems in recent weeks, the FAA has ordered all new 787 Dreamliners grounded for the time being. The FAA's emergency air-worthiness directive says before any other 787 can fly, the operator or Boeing, must prove the aircraft’s batteries are safe. Investigators are taking a hard look at the 787's electrical system and lithium batteries. The batteries in question are in protective housings that can withstand intense heat. Last week, as the FAA announced a complete review of the 787, Boeing reiterated, the plane is safe. (Image Credit: Boeing)
