This aircraft arrived at 0630 this morning and, as usual, was towed to a remote stand around 40 minutes later prior to departure to the evening departure. One good thing was it was parked just yards from the western fire station.

Well this sucks, I really hoped the 787 issues where for the most part over
I feel the chance of this not being the battery are quite slim, right?
|Quoting NYC777 (Reply 38):|
Weird, if it arrived early in the morning 6:30 London time and almost 12 hours had past until this fire started. I assume that the pilots shut down all the electrical systems after the flight arrived knowing that they don't need to be turned on until later in the evening. What time was the departure from LHR supposed to be?

Could have happened when they connected ground power or the started the APU... (if it is indeed the battery problem)

9pm BST, so this fire was about 4 hours prior to departure.
