DALLAS — Boeing has stopped test flights of its new 787 passenger jet while it determines what caused smoke in the cabin of one of its planes and forced it to make an emergency landing.

Boeing Co. shares fell $2.18, or 3.2 percent, to $67.07 on Wednesday, making it easily the worst performer in the Dow Jones industrial average.

On Tuesday, a 787 on a 6-hour test flight had to make an emergency landing in Texas after the crew reported smoke in the rear of the plane.

Boeing spokeswoman Loretta Gunter said Wednesday the company will ground its fleet of test planes while technicians analyze data from the stricken plane to pinpoint the cause of the smoke.
