An aircraft acting as a TV relay for the Olympics made a landing at Cambridge Apt after suffering a loss of its electrical system.
"The aircraft had no means of communication and navigated back to Cambridge airport via the traditional way with visual charts and standby compass."

Back to basics.  

you don't get a second chance to make a first impression!

The navigation is no trouble but no communication, especially in that busy zone, must have been something ! Also, upon landing the landing gear wasn't locked and gave up.

Hmmm, Apt = apartment in my experience, airport would be Ap or Aprt.....no matter 

And yes Hawk, 2 starter/generators on the B200 (one on each engine), plus 1 large heavy (ugh) battery. No APU or rat though...........

Good to see all are safe
