SEATTLE (AP) — Boeing says it will conduct a test flight of its 787 to see if a redesigned battery system works properly while the plane is in the air.

The company said Monday that it filed a plan to conduct a check flight on a 787 built for LOT Polish Airlines. The plane is scheduled to take off and land at Paine Field in Seattle.

Boeing Co.'s new 787s have been grounded since January, when a battery on one plane caught fire after it landed in Boston and a battery on another began smoking during a flight in Japan.

The test flight is expected to take off around 11:00 a.m. PDT and last about two hours.
