Evidence indicates Boeing 787 battery short-circuited
- USA: Saturday, January 26 - 2013 at 05:54
The US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSC) has said that the Boeing 787 Dreamliner battery that caught fire earlier this month in Boston shows of short-circuiting and a chemical reaction known as "thermal runaway," in which an increase in temperature causes progressively hotter temperatures, the Associated Press has reported. NTSB said its investigators are working with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Boeing in the US, as well as with aviation regulators and manufacturers in Japan and France. The FAA certified the 787 battery system, despite the lithium-ion batteries being susceptible to catching fire when they overheat or short-circuit than other types of batteries.
