777

Ouch!   Talk about hard landings!

Not a good day for my favourite airline, my 2nd favourite aircraft, nor one of my favourite airports.

BBC News reports on the incident at Heathrow where a British Airways Boeing 777, flight 038 coming in from Beijing, crash landed short of runway 27L.   Amazingly (thank goodness!) only minor injuries resulted to some passengers.   The aircraft, however, did not fare as well.

With over 12 years of excellent service, I believe this is the first real blemish for the "Triple 7".   But certainly not one that would scare me off!   It's still my favourite passenger aircraft, after it's bigger older brother, the Boeing 747-400.
