What we are learning is that honeywell is the focus of this particular breaking news bit because according to the air accident investigation branch -- think of them us -- as the ntsb in the uk.

They have put out a report linking the transmitters -- e.l.t., emergency locator transmitter, as a possible cause or source of the fire aboard that going to reminder 787 -- boeing dreamliner 787. we did see the stock take a dramatic drop but it has recovered to be just about flat.

We are still parsing through some of the details.

All that you need to know now is that the a.a.i .d., the uk regulator or transportation authority that looks into air accidents, has linked honeywell's emergency locator transmitter as a possible or likely cause of the fire on board that boeing dreamliner 787 in london.
