Dammit!! I'm flying out of Heathrow on Saturday. This, combined with the statements made by Bush about the increase in Terrorism coming out of the UK indicates a heightened chance of body cavity searches.

Combine that with my funny name and I'm probably going to be walking funny for a while.

First reports are in that it was engine failure and complete electrical failure.

edit:

this is the first crash of a 777 since 1995

The crew managed to control the descent to a touchdown with wings level, on grass just over the perimeter fence at Heathrow, on the 27L extended centreline. The gear was down, flaps were set at about 20°, and the indications are that the crew had started the auxiliary power unit.



cartridge start of the apu so they knew what had happened and had got the very last ditch back up running to bring the falling brick back down


kudos to the captain when the board is all red and the busses have been dumped

All electric controls must have electrical backup systems.

No power to engines on command was the ultimate problem.


The DEW people will be coming out of the Doubters and Deniers Club on

this one.
