I just posted a link to a story that you NEED to read. I didn’t know what to think....
Let me know what you make of it.
Seems like Boeing and possibly Airbus has some pull getting this done. We never flew aircraft batteries on passenger flights. They always flew on cargo birds.
One of my aircraft had a battery explosion but it did no damage. On the DC-9 the battery is enclosed in an armored box. We came out for a flight and had no DC power, when we checked the battery the box looked like a basketball. It was almost a perfect circle but it contained the explosion and we did not have a fire.
One of the cells had shorted out and detonated some battery gases.
