The US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will publish "within two or three weeks" its final report on the 2013 lithium-ion battery fire aboard a Boeing 787 at Boston airport, according to one of its investigators.

The investigation began after the auxiliary power unit battery caught fire on a Japan Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner at Boston Logan International Airport on 7 January 2013. Regulators grounded the global fleet of Dreamliners for almost four months after a second battery incident days later on an All Nippon Airways flight in Japan prompted an emergency landing and evacuation.
