NEW YORK — Boeing will resume flight tests of its long-delayed 787 jet on Thursday, six weeks after they were suspended because of an in-flight electrical fire in the plane's power distribution system.

The company says it installed an updated, interim version of the software that controls the system in the first of six test flight aircraft.

The fire that broke out on a Nov. 9 test flight to Laredo, Texas, was among the most recent of a string of problems that have plagued the 787 over the past two years. Earlier this month Boeing said it was in the middle of a three-week hold on assembling pieces of the plane. Problems with parts supplied by a variety of manufacturers around the world have added to delays.
