Despite a rollout that experienced some problems, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet has been given a clean bill of health by a joint FAA-Boeing review team. Their report noted that a previous problem with the plane’s lithium-ion batteries has been resolved. The Dreamliner was grounded for more than three months last year after batteries overheated. The FAA’s review, though prompted by a battery fire in Boston in January 2013, encompassed the entire plane, not specifically the battery issue. FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said that the administration’s review made seven recommendations for further improvements in Boeing processes and the agency’s oversight. (Image Credit: Boeing)
