NTSB to conduct more tests on Dreamliner

TUCSON, Ariz.—Federal investigators announced they will conduct more tests on Boeing’s Dreamliner 787.

The tests will be conducted by the National Transportation Safety Board at a facility in Arizona, beginning Tuesday.

Investigators with the board said tests conducted in Washington showed that a lithium-ion battery that caught fire on a plane in Boston was not overcharged.

Suspicions about the batteries and a possible fire risk prompted the United States and other nations to ground all 50 Dreamliner jets worldwide last week.
