COMMENTS: Upright and Intact
All three networks had London-based reporters follow up on yesterday's crash landing by a British Airways Boeing 777 at Heathrow Airport. The pilots recounted a power failure in both engines at 600 feet, two miles short of the airport, just as they increased the thrust. NBC's Dawna Friesen called it "a perfect crash landing" if there is such a thing, with the plane sliding to a halt "upright and intact." CBS' Mark Phillips showed us cellphone video of a wobbling aircraft and recreated the crash from a pilot simulator. Jim Sciutto narrated using an ABC Virtual View computer graphics animation.
