On Thursday, the FAA issued an airworthiness directive, which advised airlines to inspect or remove emergency locator transmitters in Boeing’s 787 Dreamliners. The directive was issued in the wake of a fire that was linked to one of the devices and instructs airlines to inspect the units on 787s for pinched wires in the casing and evidence of heat or moisture. Boeing advised airlines last week to inspect or remove the device, known as an emergency locator transmitter (ELT). (Image Credit: Boeing)
