The point of all 'news' media these days, is to guess what happened and report that. It's no longer acceptable to wait until we find out what actually happened. Sometimes they guess right, in this case they guessed wrong. Just bear this in mind next time a 'fact' is reported!

Same thing occurred albeit to a lesser extent in the early reporting of the sentencing of Mark Bridger, which is why I've made available the official transcript elsewhere on the Community forum :)

The footage shown by the BBC clearly showed the cowlings missing from both engines, it was immediately obvious to me that this was not a bird strike but a human error. Also I can't remember hearing of a bird strike taking out two engines, don't think the VC10 ever lost two engines to a bird strike. So birds taking out the engines on each wing?????

Cheers

UA 1549 lost both engines due to a bird strike on 15 Jan 2009.
