FAA orders 787 grounded after 2 battery incidents January 16, 2013
SPEEA proposes Boeing contract extension in light of 787 woes January 16, 2013
Federal aviation officials grounded the plane until they can figure out a solution to electrical problems that have caused one battery to catch fire and another to leak in the past two weeks. It's not clear how long the grounding will last.
Boeing currently builds about five of the planes every month. But it's unclear whether airlines are accepting new 787s. No new deliveries have been reported since the battery incidents began earlier this month. On Thursday, Boeing declined to talk about planned deliveries.
Boeing Co. shares are down slightly in midday trading after dropping 3.4 percent drop Wednesday.
