    787 grounding rolls on

    As the global fleet of 50 787s remains grounded while investigations into a series of onboard incidents continue, the US National Transportation Safety Bureau (NTSB) is digging deeper into investigations that it says may be prolonged.

    Boeing 787 fire investigation shifts to battery maker GS Yuasa

    TOKYO Japanese and U.S. investigators began a probe Monday into the maker of the lithium-ion batteries used in Boeing's grounded 787 jets.
    Tsutomu Nishijima, a spokesman for GS Yuasa, the battery manufacturer, said investigators visited the company's headquarters in Kyoto, Japan, and that Yuasa was cooperating with the probe.
    All 50 of the 787 Dreamliners that Boeing has delivered to airlines were grounded after an overheated battery forced the emergency landing of an All Nippon Airways 787 flight last week in western Japan. Boeing has halted deliveries of new planes until it can address the electrical problems.
    Monday's investigation involved an introductory meeting and factory tour, with deeper studies into product quality and other issues to follow as the probe continues, said Tatsuyuki Shimazu, chief air-worthiness engineer at the Civil Aviation Bureau's Aviation Safety Department.
    Two investigators from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and one from Japan's government were conducting the probe into how the batteries are made and assembled and into any quality issues, he said.
    "We are in the midst of collecting information, so as to whether there is a problem or not has not yet been determined," Shimazu said.
    Nishijima of GS Yuasa said he could not comment on details of the investigation.
    The burned insides of the ANA battery showed it received voltage in excess of its design limits. However, a battery that caught fire in a Japan Airlines Boeing 787 in Boston this month was found not to have been overcharged.

    Dreamliner battery fault probe widened

    A probe into a Japan Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner has been widened by US safety officials after ruling out overcharging as the cause of a battery fire.
    The focus is now on the battery charger and the aircraft's auxiliary power unit.
    Boeing said on Friday it would put deliveries of the 787 on hold until the Federal Aviation Administration approved its plan to ensure the safety of the batteries.
    Thomson Airways and British Airways are due to receive their first Dreamliners in May but it remains unclear whether that deadline will be met.
    Regulators grounded all Dreamliners in operation last week after an All Nippon Airways flight had to make an emergency landing.
    The aircraft was forced to land after a warning light came on in the cockpit, saying there was a problem with one of the 787's batteries.
    Japanese investigators looking into the cause of the lithium-ion battery malfunction on the ANA flight indicated that an overcharged battery may have been the cause.
    The US National Transportation Safety Board said overcharging was not the case in the JAL incident in Boston.
    "Examination of the flight recorder data from the JAL B787 airplane indicates that the APU (auxiliary power unit) battery did not exceed its designed voltage of 32 volts," the NTSB said.

    Boeing reportedly proposing 'complete check' of Dreamliner batteries amid probe

    Boeing is reportedly proposing a "complete health check" on the batteries in its 787 Dreamliner jets amid an investigation by Japanese and U.S. authorities into its troubled, technologically advanced aircraft.
    The Seattle Times reports Boeing suggested the battery check and procedural changes for pilots as possible interim ways to get the planes flying again in intensive talks with FAA officials. The Dreamliner has been grounded by multiple countries' aviation authorities, including the FAA.
    However, sources tell the Times the options proposed by Boeing may not be enough to convince officials the Dreamliner should fly again after the plane's several reported woes, including an emergency landing of a Japanese airline's 787 Wednesday.
    A Japanese investigator said Friday the burned insides of a battery in that plane indicate it operated at a voltage above its design limit.
    The All Nippon Airways plane made an emergency landing in western Japan after its pilots smelled something burning and received a cockpit warning of battery problems. Nearly all 50 of the 787s in use around the world have since been grounded.
    Photos provided by the Japan Transport Safety Board of the lithium ion battery that was located beneath the 787's cockpit show a blackened mass of wires and other components within a distorted blue casing.
    Japan transport ministry investigator Hideyo Kosugi said the state of the battery indicated "voltage exceeding the design limit was applied" to it.
    He said the similarity of the burned insides of the battery from the ANA flight to the battery in a Japan Airlines 787 that caught fire Jan. 7 while the jet was parked at Boston's Logan International Airport suggested a common cause.
    "If we compare data from the latest case here and that in the U.S., we can pretty much figure out what happened," Kosugi said.
    The 787 relies more than any other modern airliner on electrical signals to help power nearly everything the plane does. It's also the first Boeing plane to use rechargeable lithium-ion batteries for its main electrical system. Such batteries are prone to overheating and have additional safeguards installed that are meant to control the problem and prevent fires.
    GS Yuasa Corp., the maker of the lithium-ion batteries used in the 787s, said Thursday it was helping with the investigation but that the cause of the problem was unclear. It said the problem could be the battery, the power source or the electronics system.
    U.S. safety officials and Boeing inspectors joined the Japan Transport Safety Board investigation Friday.
    The American investigators -- one each from the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board and two from Boeing Co. -- inspected the ANA jet on the tarmac at Takamatsu airport in western Japan.
    An initial inspection by Japanese officials of the 787 found that a flammable battery fluid known as electrolyte had leaked from the plane's main lithium-ion battery beneath the cockpit. It also found burn marks around the battery.
