There was a melee on Friday morning as a British Airways plane reportedly suffered a “nose collapse” at Heathrow Airport after the Boeing 787-8 was seen crumpling on the tarmac.
The jet (reg. G-ZBJB) was carrying out flight #BA881 from Moscow on June 16, when the incident took place, UK Express reports.
It however noted that the extent of the damage is currently unknown.
The development comes as the airline company is just recovering from a turbulent year plagued by the pandemic.
The airline only started operation ahead of the easing of lockdown restrictions on foreign holidays on May 17.
This is just as sources said that a large number of British Airline staff were already on furlough.
A British Airways spokesperson was quoted as saying: “Like many companies we’re using the furlough scheme to protect jobs during this unprecedented crisis.
“However, it’s vital the government follows its risk-based framework to re-open international travel as soon as possible, putting more low-risk countries, like the US, on its green list at the next available opportunity.”
