The lithium-ion battery issues are resolved (they're fully entombed in a titanium box and vented to the
outside of the aircraft now), but that's not why they're here. This one is doing certification testing
on new GE engines that will be installed in the -9 edition of this aircraft.
Next month they'll be back again to do similar testing on the Rolls-Royce engines. You have a choice.

Very cool shot Dave with this lighting and the reflections of the wet tarmac.

Nicely seen Dave, do you suppose they could use one of each? Best of two worlds!
