BA 38 Cabin Crew

Hello,

I am producing a TV series about different plane accidents and am looking to get a hold of Sharon Eaton-Mercer who was the Head Cabin crew on BA 38 that crashed into Heathrow in 2008. Does anyone have her contact information or can pass on my email to her as we'd like to interview her for the show?

Thanks!
Haley

Haley, I cannot help you with the information you seek but could I please, politely, gently, ask that your forthcoming TV series refers to 'aircraft' rather than 'plane? The latter word should generally be used to refer to a flat surface.

Please forgive me for bringing this up, but despite the largely best intentions of so many news reporters, and some documentary producers, their output often assumes that when aircraft are on the ground incidents and accidents only happen on the 'runway'. The runway is merely one part of the several sections of an airport that make up the area where an aircraft will normally manouevre, when it is not in airborne flight. Other ground manoeuvring areas include the 'apron' or 'hardstand', which is where aircraft usually park Another is the taxiway, which is intended to allow an aircraft to move from it's parking spot to the runway, and back again at the end of the flight.

Trust me, I am not trying to be condescending, in any way, but it is a regular source of disappointment to the aviation fraternity when stories about aviation get the terminology wrong. For all I know, you may be pretty familar with aviation terminology, so please take this within the spirit it is given, and we all look for ward to the series, when it screens. Good luck.

A steward from the BOAC 707 is still around, and I meet him regularly. Now that will confuse many media folk.

Despite the flight crew managing to achieve great success by getting the aircraft back onto the runway, they made some massive mistakes which shall haunt them for the rest of their lives if they are still with us.

The cabin crew Barbs Jane Harrison deserved every award she received after saving those pax! In fact the cabin crew were correct in evacuating the plane as soon as it landed 👏

He was at the front of the aircraft, and young in service. He has signed a copy of the book for me. I was on duty elsewhere just outside LHR.
Indeed the medal was well deserved.

A close friend of ours was closely related to one of the poor people who perished in this incident in the 707. Very sad. Despite the very brave efforts of Jane Harrison the little girl stood little chance. Tragic
