Investigators of Britain's Air Accident Investigations Branch (AAIB), and FAA are looking into whether a fire on the Ethiopian 787 at LHR l
ast week was caused by the battery of an
emergency locator transmitter built by Honeywell International.
Airlines were told in 2009 by the FAA to replace a Honeywell transmitter that had failed in tests. Honeywell is believed to be checking whether the transmitter on the Ethiopian Airlines was the same model as the one named by FAA.
