Except, Neil, that its really a meteor - at least in my view -
and a good example of how easy it is to read too much into
witness testimony.

I know most ufologists dont agree with me - which is fine  - but
this is far from an arbitrary conclusion (see my book 'Something
in the Air'). The case is a virtual rerun of the l948 Eastern
Airlines saga and differs markedly from the Heathrow sighting
under present discussion because the BA crew saw only a well lit
mass for a couple of seconds in pitch darkness (almost right on
top of my house in Derbyshire - one reason I have spent so much
time on this l995 incident).

For more see the last weeks debate on this BA sighting on UFORL.

Best wishes,
