More media compliments!
I regret not having watched the other programmes about Heathrow Airport that BBC have broadcast this week. Tonight’s show told me about things I’d never realised … and once again everyone was precise in their descriptions of their jobs, responsibilities and duties. The programme was interesting because it dealt with facts and avoided any sort of sensationalisation. I loved it. And I didn’t realise how much training the air traffic controllers had to do! I’ve never seen inside the fuselage where the trim actuator lives, I didn’t realise that the fire engines cost 3/4 million pounds, I didn’t know that there are lightning conductors on the nose cone.
Most of all I liked the chat between the ground engineer and presenter when the latter said that he thought there was evidence of scorching/burning inside the nose wheel bay. The engineer just said “No it’s not heat marks just rubber.” Factual, polite and very re-assuring. In fact the whole programme was very confidence giving, even to me. Well done the beeb!
