— Boeing is moving a 787 Thursday from Fort Worth to Everett.

The Federal Aviation Administration gave the company permission to relocate the plane, which was at Meacham Airport for painting when the planes were grounded last month by battery problems.

Although the battery is being closely monitored, it’s not a test flight. The Federal Aviation Administration is still considering a separate Boeing request for 787 test flights.
