"Heathrow Airport, says only one in 10,000 flights results in a vortex."
|Quoting transaeroyyz (Reply 11):|
did they determine witch plane/airline it was?

This happened about 3 1/2 to 4 miles from the threshold, when a landing jet would be at least 2,000 ft above the house.
And the 'vortex' blew holes in the roof, and parts of the roof down.
I'm surprised the house hasn't fallen down before.

When a large aircraft is flying low and slow with everything hanging out (flaps, gear, etc). on a still wind day the vortexes are at their strongest.

You could narrow it down to a handful of planes with some exhausting research, but unless you were watching the event unfold it's unlikely you'd be able to pin down a culprit.
