Looks like a near miss, but really is only another day at the office on hold for LHR:

The pathetic thing is that the Aftonbladet.se article just rehashes the incorrect facts of the BBC one...

And they forget that.
- Vertical separation is 1000ft, but if they were at the same altitude horizontal separation would be much greated.
- JAL has no 330s.
- The A300 is not really a small aircraft.
- This sort of thing happens every day around LHR and other airports. I've been in planes where a 747 has whooshed by only 1000ft above. Hardly uncommon.

To truly scare the pax, one needs only to show them the size of the bolts that hold the engines on (in the case of an airliner), or the size of the bolts that hold the vertical stab and wing on (in the case of a single-engine Cessna).

- JAL has no 330s.

It looks like a 77W to me.

Also, the Aftonbladet article says:

"Det japanska passagerarplanet var en Boeing 777"

I assume that that roughly translates to "the Japanese passenger plane was a Boeing 777."

It does say that, but it used to say "Det Japanska passagerarplanet var en airbus 330" or something like that. They changed it last night, I assume after receiving a bunch of emails, among others from me.
