Post subject: From your roving On-The-Scene C-C reporter

An international passenger plane has crash landed short of the runway at Heathrow Airport.

Passengers escaped down the emergency chutes after British Airways flight BA38 from Beijing came down.


Six ambulances were sent to the scene and three people were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

The incident happened as Prime Minister Gordon Brown was due to leave Heathrow for China and India. His flight was delayed because of the incident.

The south runway is closed while investigators examine the scene - the north runway remains open.

Could be worse, Brown's flight back to China was delayed because they bent the one comin' in!
lolol

The South runway's open for take off now so all the passengers are able to see it as they taxi onto the runway.
Encouraging.
lolol

On that note, isnt it ironic that it's built by Boeing?

Yea, and that airframe. No fire and evryone walks away. On the news tonight they said the worst injury was a broken leg (Who didn't follow the instructions on how to go down the slide Rolling Eyes )

Co-pilot was flying it apparently.
BA trolled the poor crew out in front of the press at BA H.Q.
All the office staff turned out and gave them a standing ovation.
Hero's welcome, well deserved.
