Blair BA flight overshoots runway

The BA 747 hit several runway lights after landing
A British Airways plane carrying 343 passengers and crew including Tony Blair and his family has overshot a runway at Miami International Airport.
No one was injured when the Boeing 747-400 plane slid off the runway after landing at 0615 local time (2315 GMT).

Mr Blair was seated in first class on flight 209 from London - ahead of a holiday - the US Secret Service said.

The plane was not damaged and passengers were allowed to disembark at the terminal.

Airport spokesman Marc Henderson said the jet hit several airfield lights on landing but did not leave the concrete surface and returned to the terminal gate under its own power.

He said it was not immediately clear why the jet overshot the runway.

In good Bliar speak the plane did not 'overshoot' the runway, the landing was, in fact, simply 'shoot' and any definition of 'overshoot' would be unhelpful.

I wonder who is paying for this holiday?

Apparently, he's staying with one of the Gibb brothers of Bee Gees fame (you know them - the ones who who were awarded CBEs in 2002).

Cynical - moi?

The prime minister was seated in first class on flight 209 from London, which landed at 1815 local time (2315 GMT) on Tuesday, the US Secret Service said.

The book price for BA 1st Class London - Miami is £7200 return. Even on their combined salaries, it seems a bit wasteful (especially if the whole family is going) and given their alleged outgoings. Or maybe they were frugal, bought economy and hoped for and got a double upgrade.

If it was me I'd make sure there was a brief bit of Government business to attend to at the beginning or end of the holiday and call it a duty trip.
