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.

Today it is 5 years from that strange day. FZ

This is the worst could happen on a b772,i wish that the Boeing redesinged its engines....btw its a 5star rating from me....^_^

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu February 16, 2012:
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 visitor from United States posted Sun August 21, 2011:
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.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed November 17, 2010:
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.

A visitor from - posted Sat September 4, 2010:
Look at the landing gear in the forground

A visitor from United States posted Sun April 4, 2010:
That engine is a total loss. Great shot!

A visitor from - posted Thu January 17, 2008:
Great job by the pilot who had over 20 years of expierience of gliding the plane down and not killing anyone great job by the BA crew

A visitor from United States posted Thu January 17, 2008:
Nice clear picture. Gives a good overview of the damage to the airplane.

A visitor from United States posted Thu January 17, 2008:
