That was extremely lucky!

The BA pilot of BA038 PEK-LHR who managed to get the 777 down this morning at LHR deserves a medal. While we don't have the full details as to what caused the power failure - a rather large aircraft and a crew who had been flying for many hours is not exactly a recipe for success. But these guys did it and more power to them.

Now of course there is chaos at LHR with one runway out of action. Many flights have been cancelled today - over 200 mostly short haul.
