Boeing 787 Dreamliner Catches Fire at London Heathrow and 2 Other Dow Movers to Watch
The Boeing Co. (NYSE:BA): Current price $101.93
On Friday, a Boeing 787 Dreamliner operated by Ethiopian Airlines caught fire at London Heathrow, mandating the closure of its runways. Meanwhile, in early afternoon trading in New York, Boeing shares are down by more that 7 percent. Television footage showed the Dreamliner surrounded by foam from fire services who were attending to the incident. However, no passengers were aboard the aircraft. The lightweight new plane experienced a number of battery fires earlier in 2013, causing it to be grounded until Boeing came up with a repair.
