U.S. Investigating 787 Dreamliner Issues [VIDEO]

U.S. officials are on the job in Japan, seeking answers to the problems plaguing the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

FOX News Radio's Rich Johnson reports from Washington:

Audio clip:

One inspector from the FAA, another from Boeing, have been looking at an All Nippon Airways jet that had to make an unscheduled landing when the pilot smelled something burning. That something was a case holding several of the plane's lithium-ion batteries.

That, and other problems, have prompted governments around the world to ground all 50 787's now in service. Boeing calls the problems the inevitable issues that crop up in the first planes of a brand new model that come off the assembly lines.
