Dreamliner planes grounded due to safety fears
ALL 787 Dreamliner aircraft, including those powered by Derby-made Rolls-Royce engines, have been temporarily taken out of service amid safety concerns.
Yesterday, the US Federal Aviation Administration issued a directive to temporarily take the planes out of service while safety checks were carried out. The plane's lithium-ion batteries are the focus of concern.
Boeing said the planes were safe and that it stood by the integrity of the Dreamliner, which has been in service since October 2011.
Rolls-Royce supplies Trent 1000 engines to the Dreamliner, while some airlines use engines from General Electric.
