Airline finds damage to Boeing 787 part
TOKYO: Japan’s All Nippon Airways has found damage to wiring on two Boeing 787 locator beacons, a device suspected as the cause of a fire on an Ethiopian Airlines 787.
ANA spokesman Ryosei Nomura said yesterday that Boeing, the US Federal Aviation Administration and Japanese regulators had ordered checks of the beacons.
ANA has 20 of the jets dubbed the Dreamliner.
The transmitters, made by Honeywell International, guide rescuers to aircraft in emergencies.
