The wife of a collegue was on one of the flights : flight to Newark.
She called him this morning to say they were waiting for a new plane for the flights. She said the damage was considerable, whatever that means. No other details.

The signature plane is G-CIVY, the same aircraft that blew an engine on departure from JFK two weeks ago and had to return to the airport after take off.

It's off. I left LHR last night (10th Jan 2006) at about 10:00pm on a flight to TLV and I saw G-CIVY leaving LHR without any problems. I wonder if this report is accurate.

I was wondering why BA185 was so late on the 9th. See here:

G-CIVE was the aircraft that blew the engine in New York

TLV is operated by a B767 not a 747, and usually leaves at about 2230, almost always late for some reason.

It operated BA247 to Rio after having the right winglet removed.
