Japan 787 makes emergency landing due to battery

boeing-787-dreamlinerTOKYO (AP) — An All Nippon Airways flight made an emergency landing at a Japanese airport after a cockpit message showed battery problems, in the latest trouble for the Boeing 787 “Dreamliner.”

ANA spokesman Takuya Taniguchi said Wednesday that the flight to Tokyo from Ube in western Japan landed at the Takamatsu airport and details of the problem were still being checked.

ANA’s 787s have encountered several problems in the past two weeks, though no injuries have been reported.

The U.S. government is conducting a review to find out what caused a fire, a fuel leak and other worrisome incidents with Boeing’s newest and most technologically advanced airliner, though it has reassured the public it is safe to fly. Two of the incidents happened last week at Boston’s Logan International Airport.
