Problem with engines cited in jet crash

January 19, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Investigators said engines of a British Airways Boeing 777 failed to respond to demands for more thrust before it crash-landed at London's Heathrow Airport.

Thirteen people were injured Thursday when BA Flight 83 from Beijing came down well short of the runway.

The Air Accidents Investigations Branch said the flight had been normal until the plane made its final approach for landing, about two miles from touchdown.
