The fire onboard an empty Boeing 787 Dreamliner at London's Heathrow airport was linked to an Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) system produced by Honeywell International, the UK's Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said in a report today.

That unit, the RESCU406AN, is present on all Dreamliners, a Boeing spokesperson confirmed.

According to the AAIB, Honeywell has produced about 6,000 units of the model, "which are fitted to a wide range of aircraft." 777?
