All Nippon Airways has grounded all 17 of its Boeing 787 jets after one Dreamliner was forced to make an emergency landing in western Japan on Wednesday.

. . .

The incident comes on top of a slew of recent problems with Boeing’s new Dreamliner aircraft. The sophisticated new plane, the world’s first mainly carbon-composite airliner, suffered two fuel leaks, a battery fire, a wiring problem, brake computer glitch and cracked cockpit window last week.
