Thermal runaway also found in Japan 787 probe

This Jan. 31, 2013, photo provided by the Japan Transport Safety Board shows two of eight damaged cells in the battery that overheated on tan All Nippon Airways 787 on Jan. 16 and prompted an emergency landing. An investigation into the battery found evidence of the same type of "thermal runaway" seen in a similar incident in Boston.
