Heathrow Airport Something going on??

Flights have been delayed after a jet lands short of the runway,

There's some incident happening, Have no really idea whats going on,

Skies are clear??? which is a little odd?

More will follow..

There was a lot of security there today, So there may be something in that,

I think Brown was due there today and also royals from China,

Ill get more as I can,

BA flight 38 is the plane,

Ok....According to Reely's thread, a plane suffered an undercarriage failure, so the PM was delayed ??

Big deal !!

The aircraft came down at an odd Angle from what I am hearing,

The plane was coming in from Beijing,

There has been a lot of news in the last few weeks,

about boeing aircrafts onboard computers being vulnerable to terrorist hacking.

I just wonder if we will be told that iranians or al qaeda,hacked into the aircraft,and shut the engines down.

Either that or a flock of iranian (al qaeda) suicide geese were sucked into the engines.

plus it is 911 days since the thwarted london attacks on 21-7-05.

The pilot apparently told an airport worker that he lost power "without warning" and had to glide his aircraft in to Heathrow.

An airport worker told the BBC the pilot on the Boeing 777 had said he had lost all power, and had been forced to glide the plane into land.

All BA short-haul flights from Heathrow have been cancelled and others delayed.

The worker also said the pilot had told him all the electronics had also failed.

"He said he had no warning - it just went," the worker added.

"It's a miracle. The man deserves a medal as big as a frying pan."

Does this kind of thing happen?(power loss) im more than a little concerned that some terrorist group has some kind of directable EMP machine, and this was a test.. im not one to go into all the conspiricy stuff, but these things have to be checked and this is the place to do it.

after all ATS has members everywhere including places where we recieve no news from, has anyone heared anything that could be related? .

Maybe a EMP pulse shot all the electonics out or somet, odd that it failed near its destination

posted on Jan, 18 2008 @ 09:30 PM
EMP? Are you guys serious? Wow -you watch too much TV or something. This was an ACCIDENT, the landing gear malfunctioned.

This was clearly a CIA Black Ops exercise.

Seriously though - it could have been absolute carnage, all credit to the expertise of the pilot - he saved all those lives with his actions.

Not good news for Boeing though, any of this.
