Antipater (2053064) writes "It looks like there's more trouble afoot for Boeing's 787 Dreamliner: London's Heathrow Airport has been shut down as fire crews attend to a "suspected fire" on a Dreamliner owned by Ethiopia Airlines.

Aerial pictures of the scene on the U.K.'s Sky News showed the new plane — which was not carrying passengers at the time — had been sprayed by foam, but there were no signs of fire.
The aircraft was not blocking either runway, but with all the airport's fire crews tacking the Boeing 787 incident, authorities were forced to suspend departures and arrivals because of safety rules.
