There is no evidence at this stage that a fire that broke out on a Boeing Dreamliner at London's Heathrow Airport on Friday was linked to the aircraft's batteries, Britain's Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) said on Saturday. The AAIB said, "There has been extensive heat damage in the upper portion of the rear fuselage, a complex part of the aircraft, and the initial investigation is likely to take several days." Germany and France were split over European Union plans for a new agency to wind down troubled banks, with Berlin saying they go too far in centralizing control in Brussels. The body would form part of a banking union designed to underpin confidence in the euro zone and end the previously chaotic handling of cross-border bank collapses. But German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said in a letter to the EU official in charge of the plans that the European Commission is trying to pocket too much power Thomson Airways says one of its Boeing 787 Dreamliner planes travelling from England to the U.S. had to turn back after experiencing a technical issue. The incident is the second to involve one of Boeing Co.'s troubled planes on the same day. Earlier, Heathrow Airport temporarily shut down its runways due to a fire on an empty 787. less
