Thanks Rolls Royce. And yeah, those engines are total losses. Along with the plane. What a way to come to London, first hull loss for the Triple 7 if I'm not mistakin.

Isn't this the aircraft which encountered unusually cold temperatures en route over Siberia and its fuel started freezing, leading to fuel starvation just before touchdown? Only a few meters more and no one would have known the difference. Incredible. Great shot of a piece of history, too.

Yes it is that very plane. ice crystals were found the engines fuel-oil heat exchanger as a result, the pilot added more thrust but the engines didn't respond. A sad day there for British aviation

A fair shot given the appalling lighting conditions (classic British "featureless bowl of light" kind of day), but redeemed by being there at the right moment to catch this scene.
We have to remember the crew's creativity on short final - never the moment to realise you're in a glider - and the safety margins built into all airliners these days that allow them to perform a little above "book" value when it is needed most. Safety is a combination of factors just as much as accidents are, and aviation's the better for it.
