A Boeing 787 Dreamliner operated by Ethiopian Airlines caught fire at London’s Heathrow Airport Friday, shutting both of the European gateway’s two runways.
Shares of Chicago-based Boeing dropped more than 7 percent, though it’s they remain close to a year high.
Video footage showed the plane surrounded by foam used to quell the flames. The airport said in a statement that it was an on-board internal fire, but didn’t offer more details. It said the plane was empty, parked in a remote area and there were no reported injuries. All flights in and out are temporarily suspended — a standard procedure if fire crews are called out.
Boeing said in a statement released on Twitter that it was aware of the problem and that Boeing personnel was on the scene.
