Initial investigations by AAIB field officers indicate that this may not have been an airmiss. It is believed that one of the passengers was in fact looking for British Midland and got off the tube too early and ended up in T4 in error.

Guv, are you a proper clone or just a no frills version of the original?

Obviously a no-frills variant, Desk Jet. At least the full-service Guvnor gives you the full picture!

The "full service" Guvnor breaches The Daily Telegraph's copyright in the process....

Inelegant Aeros - I always attribute; and more to the point there's a fellow PPRuNer who's a high-up in the DT so I don't think it will be a problem...
