An internal fire broke out on Friday on a Boeing 787 that Ethiopian Airlines had parked between flights at London’s Heathrow Airport, the airport
The plane was in a remote area, and no passengers were on board. But a Heathrow spokesman said the airport temporarily suspended arrivals and
departures for all other flights while fire crews responded to the incident.
Boeing said it was aware of the problem, but neither the airport nor Boeing provided any information about the cause of the fire.
This cannot be good. With the previous problems with the 787, his might be another set back.
Guess we will need to wait for an investigation to see if it is due to the plane design or equipment.
