More than 90 percent of votes cast at a Rockwell Collins shareholder special meeting voted in support of acquisition of B/E Aerospace, a Florida-based manufacturer of aircraft passenger cabin interior products.

B/E shareholders also approved the deal with the Cedar Rapids-based avionics and communications giant.

The deal is expected to close in the spring.
