    FAA grounds Boeing Dreamliner jets

    The Federal Aviation Administration issued an emergency order late Wednesday telling U.S. airlines to stop flying Boeing 787 Dreamliners until they can prove that batteries on board are safe.

    It's a major blow for Boeing and its sophisticated new jetliner that's made largely from lightweight carbon composite material, which allows airlines.to save on fuel and which passengers like for its airy cabins.

    The action came the same day a smoldering battery forced the emergency landing in Japan of an All Nippon Airways plane. That incident followed a fire Jan. 7 aboard an empty Japan Airlines 787 at Boston's Logan airport..............more at link..........

    I hear you, blue. If anyone ever hears of me taking a trip on one of these planes, please have me medicated somewhere safe....

    I am scared of these new planes. Not that the older ones had a lot of metal to protect you in a crash, but these have even less...And the batteries...:what:
