Air Ethiopian Boeing 787 Dreamliner 'Queen of Sheba' aeroplane caught fire earlier Friday forcing Heathrow Airport to close to all air traffic for an hour during the incident. The cause of the fire on the Ethiopian Airlines plane, which broke out more than 8 hours after it had landed in London, remained under investigation. The location of the fire led some experts to surmise it wasn't the planes lithium-ion batteries.
