Aerospace giant Boeing said Monday that a test flight of its troubled 787 plane went according to plan, in its latest step in returning to service the 787 fleet, grounded by two battery incidents.
The 787 successfully traveled for 2 hours and 9 minutes, departing and returning to Everett, Washington, a company statement said.
"Today's flight was a normal Boeing production check flight intended to validate that all systems function as designed," Boeing said. "The crew reports that the flight went according to plan."
