787 Return to Flight
Nearly a decade in development and three years late, Boeing’s 787 entered revenue service with launch customer All Nippon Airways in October 2011. But on Jan. 17, the fleet of 50 aircraft operated by eight carriers was grounded due to problems with its lithium-ion batteries. Boeing revised the lithium-ion battery system and aircraft began returning to revenue flights in April.
