Recovery team starts moving BA 777 from Heathrow

Published 20/01/2008

A specialist recovery team has started moving the British Airways plane which crash-landed at Heathrow on Thursday.

The Boeing 777's engines failed, but the co-pilot managed to avert disaster by landing just within the airport's fence.

An investigation will continue to try and determine the cause of the fault once the wreckage has been moved.
