LONDON (AP) - Officials are clearing the wreckage of a British Airways jet that made a crash landing at Heathrow airport last week.
The Boeing 777, which suffered engine failure before landing at Britain's largest airport on Thursday, had remained on the edge of 1 of the runways while it was examined by crash investigators.
An initial inquiry found that everything had gone normally with the Beijing-to-London flight until the aircraft was just two miles from landing.
Passengers and witnesses say the plane's landing gear ripped away before the plane came to a halt on its belly. Nineteen injuries were reported.
The plane was carrying 136 passengers and 16 crew members.
Officials will continue to examine the aircraft in a nearby hangar.
