A spokesman for British Airways today confirmed that the recent atrocious weather was entirely to blame for yesterdays dramatic crash landing at Heathrow involving 136 passengers.
Today, the pilot has spoken out publicly. In a hastily called press conference, he stated,"I had the windscreen wipers on maximum, but the rain was just so heavy that I couldn't see a bloody thing. The next thing I knew, the co-pilot was shouting,"Mind that bleedin' fence!" so I pulled up on the throttle, banked heavily into the wind and hit the grass.
"The water on the grass caused me to aquaplane across 2 runways and I lost control of the wheel and the landing gear dropped off. I am just relieved it wasn't snowing. Last year snowmen were a real problem on the runway."
A BA spokesman also commented that due to a high amount of acid in Britain's recent heavy rain, the wings, tails and fuselage of Boeing's are very likely to crumble mid-air.
He also asked reporters to respect the privacy of passengers involved in the emergency landing who he claimed are still coming to terms with the shock, stating, "Can you please interview a Brit, French or Italian passenger next time, that Dutch guy made this into the most boring crash landing in living history."
