In by a nose. In one fantastic picture all the horror, the high drama and the tingling tension of a nightmare moment. The terrifying scream of protesting metal, the shower of sparks, and the storm of blinding dust as a giant jetliner touches down...without a nose-wheel. The moment when the pilot has quietly completed his emergency drill and can do no more, when the chips are finally down. And when each second now stretches into an eternity, hearts miss a beat, and helpless watchers can only wait and hope. It happened at London Heathrow Airport on Friday (31-3-67). And the huge Boeing 707 Foxtrot Papa came in safely. B.O.A.C. Pilot Captain Peter Mains-Smith and his crew of four scrambled out through an emergency chute - and dismissed the drama in the calm manner beloved by airmen. April 1967 P004398
