The Dreamliner airplanes use 20% less fuel and are supposed to offer a superior ride, but the planes have had many glitches so far, including repeated fuel leaks, a cracked cockpit window, and brake problems.
The All Nippon Airways Boeing 787 Dreamliner plane made an emergency landing at Takamatsu airport in Japan, because there was an error message in the cockpit citing a battery malfunction.
Smoke appeared in the plane’s cockpit, but it is still not known what caused the fire to start. It was also reported that there was a strange smell.
All 137 passengers and crew members were evacuated safely.
