I'm not sure it was a primary factor for sure one of the swiss cheese holes absolutely. I saw the aircraft coming down as it went past the Church in Kegworth. I was convinced it was an ATP (the BM flight from LHR came in at the same time). The wife vividly remembers the flames, with my dodgy eyesight I can still remember the horrible clanking noise from the stricken engine (thus why i thought it was the ATP)
