Looks like yet another Dreamliner is on fire—this time, it's on the tarmac at London Heathrow Airport. (Luckily, it appears the jet is empty.) You'll remember that the Boeing 787 was initially grounded back in January after one of the aircraft caught fire on the ground at Boston Logan Airport. This new fire comes just months after a revised design of the Dreamliner with a new battery system was cleared for take off by the FAA and international flight organizations. Uh oh.
