Boeing Breaking News: Boeing Dreamliner Catches Fire at Britain's Heathrow Airport

Wochit 1:03 mins

A Boeing 787 Dreamliner operated by Ethiopian Airlines caught fire at Britain's Heathrow airport, forcing the closure of both of its runways. There were no passengers aboard the plane, and a Heathrow spokeswoman said fire services were attending the incident. Some more turbulence for Boeing investors. Shares in the airplane manufacturer sold off more than 4 per cent after reports showed an Ethiopian Airlines plane on fire at Britain's Heathrow airport. Investigators are examining the cockpit interaction of two Asiana Airlines pilots who had taken on new roles before the crash of Flight 214 ? one of whom had seldom flown a Boeing 777 and an instructor who was on his first training flight. While the two men had years of aviation experience, this mission involved unfamiliar duties, and it was the first time they had flown together.
