You know our colleague Fox Business anchor and pilot Tom Sullivan thank you for sticking around -- -- couldn't -- Cheryl Casone that.
You thought it was only a matter of time before the -- and ion battery issue resurgent us.
This battery has a history of love thermal runaways as they call it.
It means -- basically just heats up and not -- and then they found out these were not over charge of one to the pad the fires.
So there's something going on within these batteries and there's actually.
Some might roll cousins -- data in -- that that that the crew is created in these better his way over my head the the aviation engineers.
And they disagree on what is causing these fire and a couple points we have Mike Boyd on how we asked him has Boeing ever determine what caused the original fires -- those -- -- -- on batteries he said no they have not.
But aren't you being premature because we don't even know if this is a -- -- yet.
We don't know and and that's a very good point if it's if it's if it's something else could hit a woman who left something a big sigh of relief but -- it -- it for exactly where a lot of the fires have been his when their on the ground because that's when you're using your batteries more than.
Then when you're in the year you've got generators going and another thing and yet that door the cargo door where the battery compartment Denny's is open on the other side of the aircraft so yeah.
-- -- Hartman in the back of the 787 it looks like a telephone switching room I mean it's.
Just nothing but computers and wires.
How committed to the 780s except that this particular battery is a 787 is it possible -- -- the whole -- -- not know or that they might have.
And that's no the plane is built around -- you know I am battery but I must wait if they go to the old fashioned matter good news is they've come up with a new were.
Version of a lithium ion battery that was not in existence in 2005.
When Boeing was putting these things at least that was part of the engineering so the question will be.
Will they scrap the current battery and put in a different type a more moderate and.
As a pilot we have to get out of this segment quickly I'm sorry but.
Should we be questioning whether or not get on board a 787.
I would put us there I would not put my family on a 787 until they identify the problem they haven't even identified -- little -- fixes thank you so much comes element.
