It took four years, €60,000 – that's $81,150 here in the States – and more welding than the San Francisco Bay Bridge retrofit, but Bernd Berger and his crew created the ultimate snowbound DJ party rig.
The Federal Aviation Administration is considering letting Boeing resume flight testing the 787 Dreamliner to further investigate a battery problem that has grounded all 50 planes in service worldwide. The goal is to carefully subject a plane to real-world conditions...
