Breaking News: ANA 787 Emergency Landing In Japan

Breaking News: Published reports say an ANA (All Nippon Airways) Boeing 787 Dreamliner made an emergency landing in Japan on 16 January 2013 (local Japan time) due to reports of smoke in the cockpit and battery-related alerts.

The reports say none of the passengers or crew were hurt.

This is breaking news and it will be updated as more details become available.

UPDATE #1
NHK is reporting that the ANA flight was scheduled service from Ube to Tokyo before the emergency forced a landing at Takamatsu airport in southern Japan. Other published reports claim the two Japanese operators of the 787 Dreamliner, ANA and Japan Air Lines (JAL), have grounded their fleets of 787s pending an outcome of the investigation into this most recent incident.

The reports of injuries of those aboard today's incident aircraft have also been updated to reflect a minor hip injury to an elderly passenger during the evacuation of the incident aircraft.
