Synopsis >

(1/29/2013) Originally hailed as the most technologically advanced commercial airplane, Boeing's 787 Dreamliner is proving to be a nightmare. Production problems caused a three-year delivery delay and since the roll out in 2011 there have been a series of issues including mis-installed fuel couplings, a series of electrical problems and most recently smoking batteries that caused a emergency landing. Earlier this month the FAA ordered a full investigation of the electrical system and grounded the six Dreamliners operating in the US. We take a look at what went wrong with the Dreamliner. Also, the unseen cost of war -- a follow up on our investigation into burn pits and their health effects on our soldiers. And, Dan Rather reflects on the second inauguration of President Obama.
