On the 17th of January 2008 a Boeing 777 from British Airways, flight 38, was flying from Beijing, China to London Heathrow, United Kingdom.
On final approach to runway 27L, the aircraft lost thrust on both its Rolls Royce RB211 Trent 89517 engines and the pilots were unable to regain thrust.
The aircraft crashed down 330m before the runway threshold and the right main gear separated, the left got pushed through the wing and the nosegear collapsed. Of the 136 passengers and 16 crew, everybody survived the accident with one serious injury and several minor ones. A true miracle!
In this video, I will cover the causes behind this accident and what we can learn from it.
