On 28 November 2008, a Boeing 777-200ER, operated by British Airways as flight BA38, on its way from Beijing, China to London (Heathrow), suffered on approach to Heathrow Airport an in-flight engine rollback. At 720 feet agl, the right engine ceased responding to autothrottle commands for increased power and instead the power reduced to 1.03 Engine Pressure Ratio (EPR). Seven seconds later the left engine power reduced to 1.02 EPR. This reduction led to a loss of airspeed and the aircraft touching down some 330 m short of the paved surface of Runway 27L at London Heathrow. The investigation identified that the reduction in thrust was due to restricted fuel flow to both engines. It was determined that the restriction occurred most probably in the Fuel Oil Heat Exchangers. The investigation identified the forming of ice in the fuel system as probable cause. The aircraft was destroyed, but there were no casualties.

BEA was formed in 1946 and took over most UK domestic and European routes under the British government's nationalisation policy. It began operations with a fleet of outdated and hopelessly uneconomic passenger aircraft that were derivatives of wartime types such as the DC-3, Avro Viking and Rapide. By the end of 1955 the airline had re-equipped with more modern types such as the jet-prop Viscount and moved into a profit for the first time. From 1960 onwards the airline introduced larger jets such as the Comet, Trident and BAC 1-11. BEA merged with the British Overseas Airways Corporation in 1974 to form British Airways.This book looks at BEA's predecessors, its formation and early operation from Croydon and Northolt and the move to the newly-opened London Heathrow. The evolving structure is explained with chapters covering engineering bases, terminals, European and domestic services, cargo services and helicopter operations. The aircraft flown are all described in detail and the book includes anecdotes from former crew and ground-staff, a full fleet list and is highly illustrated throughout.

Introduction to Corporate Finance has been developed to provide a first course in the subject that interests and motivates students. The text has been designed to meet the needs of finance specialists and non-specialists, the latter being a segment of the audience that are not well catered for in the finance subject area. The text thus addresses the challenges all finance educators face: keeping students at varying degrees of ability and interest motivated and committed to the learning experience. The principal aim of the book is to deliver a student-friendly text that at the same time is theoretically rigorous. Corporate Finance covers the traditional topics of time value of money, risk and return, valuation, investment appraisal, capital structure and dividend policy, international finance and risk management, and financial planning. This edition is an adaptation for a European and UK audience of the text originally authored by Bill Megginson and Scott Smart, Introduction to Corporate Finance. The book has been rewritten, restructured and reorganized to reflect a European-centric approach.Throughout the authors have attempted to blend a balance of material it is impossible and improper to ignore the interlinkedness of modern finance, and in adapting this book the authors have been conscious of this. Although the examples, terminology and currencies are mainly those of Europe and the UK, the authors have not neglected to include US and other examples where needed to illustrate a point. Students working through this text will realise by the end that while details may differ from country to country the essential questions and concerns of corporate finance remain constant.
