  • Description

    A BOAC BOEING 707 JET YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) MADE A SPECTACULAR CRASH LANDING AT LONDON AIRPORT AFTER ITS NOSE-WHEEL FAILED TO COME DOWN AT THE END OF A TRAINING FLIGHT. NONE OF THE CREW OF FIVE WAS INJURED.

    THE PILOT SIGNALLED AN EMERGENCY WHEN THE NOSE WHEEL OF THE AIRCRAFT FAILED TO GO DOWN, AND THEN CIRCLED THE AIRPORT FOR AN HOUR TO USE UP FUEL. AND EYE-WITNESS AT THE AIRPORT DESCRIBED THE EMERGENCY LANDING AS A BEAUTIFUL PIECE OF FLYING.

    FOR MORE THAN AN HOUR AFTER THE INCIDENT, THE RUNWAY WAS CLOSED T TRAFFIC WHILE THE AIRLINER WAS PROPPED UP ON JACKS AND TOWED AWAY.
