Japan aerospace agency to check damaged Boeing battery: ministry

Japan's transport ministry said on Tuesday that the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) will check the damaged battery from an All Nippon Airways <9202.T> Dreamliner jet that made an emergency landing in western Japan last week.

The ministry said JAXA will conduct a CT-scan on the battery, which was made by Japan's GS Yuasa Corp <6674.T>, because the agency has the equipment to carry out the inspection.

U.S. and Japanese aviation safety officials visited a GS Yuasa factory in Kyoto on Tuesday for a second day of investigations. They were joined by officials from Boeing Co , maker of the Dreamliner 787 jet.
