    Sorry only in Japanese. It was performing the KIX-OKJ training on Oct 22 and got hit by lightning. It was then grounded at OKJ for inspection. ANA resumed training flights after inspection is completed the next day.

    Poor thing...first hit by the bridge then now lightning :p

    Aviation was and still is always very unpredictable, still feel for Boeing and ANA for the delay of nearly 3 years in delivering the first plane and now this rather unfortunate events! What a timing!:(

    Of course, each of these events will probably NOT stop me from flying a 787 when the opportunity presents itself! :)

    For what!? Not their fault the lightning hit and it was being pulled when it hit the bridge.

    Two relatively infrequent events...neither the fault of the plane...both happened to it before it begins regular service.

    Surviving the lightning strike is indeed re-assuring. I worry a bit about bluescreening in these entirely computerized cockpits...

    Boeing should be paying ANA for all their reports -- good to know the composite plane is holding up to the rigors and unexpected events in flying! All these stress tests are probably stressing ANA out! ;)

    The day that a plane starts using Windows for its flight systems is a day I boycott that entire manufacturer
