Britannia 767 And BA ATR Crash!

Wed Oct 11, 2000 7:48 am

Tonight, and British Airways ATR Crashed at Bournmouth due to the weather conditons, the pics on the BBc show it to be not badly damaged.
And a Britannia 767 overrun the runway at Gatwick, again due to the weather.it could not stop in time. luckily only BY Cabin crew were aboard. I have seen no pics yet, so I can not say if the plane is a write off or not.

Apparently, the 767 had 146 people on board, and had came from Manchester, to pick up more people to fly to Phuket. it overrun the runway, and became stuck in the mud,but it was only damage to the landing gears, which will be serviced, then the plane will continue to Phuket.

Sky News at 00.09 said Gatwick is closed, presumably the taxiway is blocked too close to the runway
