LONDON, Nov 24 (Reuters) - European shares dropped to a one-week low on Tuesday, with disappointing updates from companies such as Zodiac Aerospace and a blow to tourism stocks from a U.S. travel warning putting pressure on the market.

Sentiment was also hit by geopolitical tensions after Turkey shot down a Russian warplane near the Syrian border.

The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index was down 1.3 percent at 1,480.22 points by 1128 GMT after hitting a one-week low. It had closed 0.3 percent lower on Monday.

Germany's DAX outperformed the wider market after a survey showed German business morale unexpectedly improved in November but was still down 0.9 percent.

Zodiac shares fell as much as 13.6 percent after the aerospace supplier posted a 44.6 percent drop in core annual earnings following production delays at its troubled aircraft seats division. It was last down 7.7 percent.   Continuación...
