Dreamliners grounded in Japan after continuing problems

JAPAN – They call it the Dreamliner, but lately it’s been more like a nightmare. All Japan airlines have grounded their fleets of the Boeing 787s.  There have been a series of problems with the planes, from oil and fuel leaks, to engine cracks and a damaged cockpit window.

Boeing’s chief engineer insists the jets are safe.  Still, the federal aviation administration is checking in, especially after the most recent problem in Japan forced an emergency landing.  Apparently an alarm signal on a battery went off.  No one was hurt, but passengers could smell something burning.

Yah know, enough about traveling stinks.  This kind of “turbulence’ needs to be fixed.
