Another down...

Saturday, February 14, 2009 » 09:16am

A British Airways passenger jet carrying 67 passengers and 5 crew has crash-landed at London City Airport on Friday evening, officials said. All were evacuated safely.

BA Flight 8456 was flying from Amsterdam to London, an airport spokeswoman said on customary condition of anonymity. London firefighters said the plane was carrying 67 passengers and five crew.

It crashed onto the runway around 8pm local time. The airport runway is now closed.

London ambulance officials said four people were treated for minor injuries but no one was taken to hospitals.

London City Airport, in the eastern part of the British capital, is mainly used for domestic and European flights.

The crash-landing in London came a day after a commuter plane nose-dived into a suburban house in upstate New York, killing all 49 people aboard and one person in the home.
