All of Boeing's new 787 Dreamliners are now grounded. Airlines and governments all over the world on Thursday ordered the grounding of Boeing 787s until they could determine what caused a new type of battery to fail on two planes in recent days, resulting in an emergency landing Wednesday and a fire last week. Eight airlines now fly the 787, which entered service in November 2011, including All Nippon Airways, Japan Airlines in Japan, Air India, Ethiopian Airlines, LAN, LOT, Qatar Airways and United. Boeing plans to keep building its flagship jetliner while engineers try to solve the battery problems. It's not clear how long the investigation, or the fix, will take. (Image Credit: Boeing)
