Computer system suspected in Heathrow 777 crash

Eh?

I Quote:

"Whatever the causes, I have visited the Boeing 777 factory floor (damned impressive) and was SERIOUSLY impressed with the dedication and professionalism displayed by the people there. The fact that everyone escaped unhurt is not just due the unquestioned skill of the flight-crew, it is also down the build-quality of the plane."

I sadly think that the build quality of the plane has very little to do with the fact that everyone thankfully survived.

I can just imagine the conversation in the cockpit:

PILOT: "F**K! WE HAVE NO ENGINES!

CO-PILOT " Don't worry mate, just sit back. its a Boeing. Made with Pride in the good ol' U. S of A. , Worst case is we lose our no claims bonus, and need a new under carriage. Job Done....................."
