  • Bin Laden Plane Crash 'Doesn't Make Sense'

    A plane crash that killed three members of the bin Laden family "doesn't make sense", according to a pilot who regularly flies into Blackbushe Airport. Speaking to Sky News, Simon Moores explained how the Phenom 300 jet, which came down over a car auction site in Hampshire on Friday, "has every conceivable state-of-the-art safety function you can possibly imagine". He explained how the plane takes approximately 750m to 800m to land - but as Blackbushe's runway is 1,300m, there should have been no reason for the aircraft to overshoot as it arrived from Milan's Malpensa Airport.

It was a match that marked Petr Cech’s debut for his new club, but more significantly, was the first time Arsene Wenger had beaten a Mourinho team in 14 attempts.
