Japan's Civil Aviation Bureau and the FAA pay a visit to Kyoto-based GS Yuasa, which provided the lithium-ion batteries that malfunctioned in two Boeing (BA) 787 jets. The investigation is also set to take in a United Tech (UTX) unit that builds the Dreamliner's auxiliary power unit and Meggitt PLC subsidiary Securaplane Technologies, a Tucson company that makes the charger for the batteries.
