Boeing 787 lands in Everett

The first Boeing 787 permitted to fly since Jan. 16 landed at Everett’s Paine Field at about 10:56 a.m. after a “ferry flight” from Fort Worth, Texas, where it was being painted for future delivery to China Southern Airlines.

Boeing said the flight was “uneventful,” adding that the crew monitored the battery status throughout the flight.

The Federal Aviation Administration authorized the plane to make a single, direct flight from Fort Worth Meacham International Airport to Everett, on condition Boeing took specified safety measures and the plane carried only the necessary crew.

Neither test flights nor regular passenger flights have been allowed since two battery malfunctions last month led the FAA to order the planes grounded.
