British Airways Jet crashes into building in South Africa (Photo)

A Boeing 747 jet belonging to British Airways, yesterday Sunday Dec. 22nd crashed its right wing into an airport building inside the OR Tambo Airport in Johannesburg, South Africa. (Pic above)

The flight, which was on its way to London, veered off the taxiway as it headed to the runway and buried its right wing in the 2-storey brick structure, injuring four airport officials, Daily Mail reports.

A statement from the South African Civil Aviation Authority's (SACAA) preliminary report, said the aircraft was cleared for takeoff on Runway 03L but took a smaller runway.
'The air crew got instructions from the Air Traffic Control to taxi using taxi way B. The crew continued onto taxi way M which is narrower resulting in the aircraft impacting on an office building behind the SAA Technical hangers.
A spokesman for OR Tambo airport said the 17 Crew and 185 passengers who were in the aircraft escaped unharmed. They were evacuated from the aircraft and spent the night in a hotel.

What crash? Reading the glaring "headline" one would think it was a plane crash (and the stella haters would have had loads to say about it). It was just a wing. Get your facts straight. Smh.

Wrong Headline ... 4 pilots??? Them all played with their license/Career. British Airline Capt for that matter. SMH

lexusgs430 said...

The Pilots should have an IQ & eye test !!!! Did they not see the wings approaching the buildings? Or question the instructions received from the control tower after they felt something might be wrong ?
Lots of questions they have to answer !!!!
