LONDON – A British Airways passenger jet carrying 72 people crash-landed at London City Airport on Friday evening, officials said. All were evacuated safely.
BA Flight 8456 was flying from Amsterdam to London, an airport spokeswoman said on customary condition of anonymity. London firefighters said the plane was carrying 67 passengers and five crew.
It crashed onto the runway around 8 p.m. (2000 GMT, 3 p.m. EST). The airport runway is now closed.
London ambulance officials said four people were treated for minor injuries but no one was taken to hospitals.
London City Airport, in the eastern part of the British capital, is mainly used for domestic and European flights.
The crash-landing in London came a day after a commuter plane nose-dived into a suburban house in upstate New York, killing all 49 people aboard and one person in the home.

I don't think it "crashed." Nose gear collapsed on landing, it would appear.

You should work for the National Enquirer with a title like that! Please change it to something more appropriate. " BA Jet crash lands at London City Airport" would be more truthful.
