A Dreamliner test flight with top Boeing and All Nippon Airways' executives aboard took off from a Tokyo airport Sunday, the carrier said, three months after the worldwide fleet of 787s was grounded.

ANA chairman Shinichiro Ito and Boeing chief executive Ray Conner were aboard the flight which departed around 9:00 am local time (0000 GMT), as Boeing and one of its largest Dreamliner customers ANA seek to reassure passengers that the planes are safe.
