No serious injuries in London crash

The crashes continue.

In London yesterday, BA Flight 8456 screeched down the runway when its front landing gear failed. There were no fatalities, and only one of the 71 people on board had injuries (which were minor). Nonetheless, the emergency slides were evacuated, and passengers slid to safety on the tarmac. So far, the cause of the problem is unknown

Because of the crash, the cabin filled with smoke, causing alarm among the passengers who were initially calm. Of course, all was fine after staff members at London’s City Airport served the passengers food and drinks. See, airlines aren’t greedy!
