787 lands safely in Everett

Authority to perform the ferry flight, which was conducted on Feb 7 under a Special Flight permit, was conditional on the crew performing pre-flight inspections of batteries and cables for signs of damage, a mandatory check for battery status on the electronic display before take-off and continuous monitoring for battery related messages during the flight itself.
