The National Transportation Safety Board plans to hold an investigative hearing on April 23 and 24 into the 787 battery fire at Boston's Logan International Airport. The board said the hearing on the Jan. 7 incident will look at "issues relating to the design, testing and certification of the battery system." Boeing is "very close" to flying the 787 with a redesigned battery system, according to CEO Jim McNerney.
