Joining countries around the world and grounding Boeing 787 dreamliner.
After a week of issues.
For the new aircraft turned into a very very big story so we sent our Jeff Flock to O'Hare international in Chicago and he's there with more today Jeff.
How long with a polish airlines lot airliner one of the 780 sevens they were supposed to let the O'Hare international terminal where I stand this morning.
Inaugurate their service from Chicago -- war saw yesterday.
The plane came in from Warsaw was scheduled to depart last night at 955.
It did not do so is still on the ground we sought out there.
Just one of the planes have been grounded both here in the US Europe.
Elsewhere around the world in the Asia as well as in the Middle East.
Here's what we know at this point.
All of these aircraft are ground and it's the first time the FAA has grounded an aircraft since an historic flight here in Chicago.
American Airlines flight 191 back in 1979 which crashed on takeoff it was a DC ten.
McDonald Douglas aircraft.
FAA grounding all DC -- for a while it turned out.
That the actually -- engine fell off that aircraft that went into a barrel roll and crash.
Thus far obviously.
The Boeing dreamliner has been able to avoid any kind of crash or any kind of serious problem but the problem is nodes those lithium ion batteries I talk to -- Friend who works in the auto industry and of course they've had their problems with lithium ion batteries in the new vehicles a new electrified vehicles.
This is a battery told me that has a tremendous amount of energy and working where that is very difficult.
And working the kinks out of it is something they need to do.
But that's something they have successfully been able to do in the auto industry he said he is confident that in the airline industry Boeing will be able to get it right eventually to the right now.
Planes on the ground guys.
Jeff thank you for that reporting Jeff Flock in what looks like a very cold Chicago.
