Sky's home affairs correspondent mark White said: "There is very bad weather in the area - thick fog.

"We believe there are two casualties - one is seriously injured, the other less so."


Well, I am uncertain as to the sensitivity of this accident and it's relevance to security. Fortunately it appears no one died.

When submitting Breaking Alternative News, it is expected and enforced that you use the article title.... This time I will edit it for you.... let's not have another one of these, k?

There are people saying that they saw a large redish orange sphere of light following the aeroplane as it came into the airport, it then shot off at incredible speed to the west, and it was not another aircraft????


What that about?

It's very foggy where I am, and if it's the same in Birmingham as well, it may be a factor in the crash.

I know someone who has gone to Birmingham, I'll try to find out any details on the weather conditions when they get back and indeed, if they saw anything.

Birmingham Airport closed after 'light aircraft crash'

Excerpt from the Link:




Birmingham Airport closed after 'light aircraft crash'



All flights at Birmingham Airport have been suspended and the runway closed after a small aircraft is believed to have crashed near the site.

The ambulance service said two people had been taken to hospital.

One witness described seeing the plane on fire as it came into land at 1535 GMT and then "break into a fireball".

A Birmingham Airport spokesman said the aircraft involved was a private Cessna and all flights were currently suspended.

Eyewitness Dennis Gough, who was playing golf by the runway at the time, said he saw the plane coming in to land.

'Leaning to one side'

"As it was coming to land it was on fire and as as it approached the runway it looked like it was leaning to one side slightly," he said.

"Then, once it hit the runway there were sort of flames alongside the runway then it broke into a big fireball."

Engine fire? Collision with something in the fog? The plane was on fire according to this eyewitness.

Just an update on my earlier post, they have come back from Birmingham and said the fog was very bad.

Birmingham Airport shut as transplant aircraft crashes

From the Link:




Birmingham Airport shut as transplant aircraft crashes



All flights at Birmingham Airport have been suspended and the runway closed after a small jet aircraft carrying a liver for transplant crashed nearby.

Two people were taken to hospital after the plane came down in foggy weather.

One witness said the plane was on fire as it came in to land at 1535 GMT and then burst "into a fireball".

A West Midlands Police motorcyclist was able to carry the organ from the scene through heavy traffic to the city's Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Terrible when this kind of thing happens, I was shocked when first I became aware of all the air traffic related incidents in just the US alone daily. ROSE EDIS has many many reports on it for major to minor problems all the time worldwide.
