A Boeing 787 Dreamliner took off Sunday from a Tokyo airport, the first such flight in Japan since safety issues grounded the Dreamliner fleet. Japan had authorized passenger airlines to resume flying the embattled aircraft in the country starting Friday, authorities said.


It left Tokyo's Haneda Airport on Sunday morning with a team of All Nippon engineers, that airline's chairman, Shinichiro Ito, and Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO Ray Conner. The plane landed about two hours later without incident, Boeing said.


"With the successful completion of today's flight, Boeing will continue to work closely with airline customers in Japan and other countries on ... modification work to safely return additional 787s to flight in the coming weeks," Boeing said in a statement.


The flight marked a milestone in Japan, but the plane wasn't the first Dreamliner to take flight since the problems first surfaced. Ethiopian Airlines flew passengers from Addis Ababa to Nairobi, Kenya, on Saturday.


I want to be on a dreamliner for my next trip if I can.

No, he has been a pilot for over 30 years, working for AirCanada and Emirates. He has been at Emirates for over 15 years, which is enough seniority to fly the A380.

bah!

I am bush Pilot in Brazil for more than 5 years. if I can fly that junkplanes and still manage to be safe on it in the middle of nowhere I´m pretty sure it will be safe fly a machine with 2 turbofans and zillions of computers...

people complain about the 787 battery. try fly a Cessna 310Q in the middle of the jungle between Belém and Manaus, you will see the hell on earth...

The 787 is fine. The FAA investigation went all out on this baby and for it to get the go ahead to start flying again means its safe.

yep. it´s true. I´m a bush Pilot here. flying old airplanes, 27 years, dealing EVERY FLIGHT with an ATC that doesn´t cooperate with me, zillions of miles of damm f$%%# jungle, crazy weather, very short runways, marginal operations, very poor maintenance, stress, malfunctions, roberry, shootings, stupid passengers, overloaded airplane and dual language ATC (English/Portuguese)...BUT people get worried about the brand new 787! I´m worried checking if at least 70% of the airplane is suitable because we gonna have to take-off overloaded again to cross 600 miles in the middle of nowhere, there´s NO alternative, there´s NO deviation and there´s NO other airfield for the next 600 miles. your only choice is land or die...and them the guy landing an A320 in Vancouver International Airport thinks too hard do an ILS by hand. I would be happy if the weather radar of my airplane works fine for more than 3 flights without brake...

dude. it´s the scariest thing ever. 4 hours in the middle of nothing just thinking "if I crash here there´s 100% of change I will die of any possible way [impact, disease, wild animal, indians] and nobody will find me"

yeah that's rough. i'll take death by impact i guess. really puts things into perspective. where i have flown, i've always been within minutes of several airports. it can make things a little tricky when trying to figure out if you're actually going to the right place, but it adds a great sense of security.

edit: not to mention it's full of fields that are safe to land on

Only on first or business class. Otherwise, it's just another seat in the sky.
