Seattle, Washington ( KIRO ) Boeing sent a 787 up on a test flight Saturday, the first since the new airliner was grounded three weeks ago because of a battery fire.
The aircraft took off from Boeing Field in Seattle and spent nearly two and a half hours flying back and forth over the inland Columbia Plateau.
It landed at Boeing Field shortly before 3 p.m.
According to flight–tracking website flightaware, the aircraft flew for 1,131 miles, slightly more than the 919 planned.
