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.

  • 'Once in a blue moon' - Watch out for rare lunar event happening tonight

    For the first time in three years, a blue moon will be visible tonight. Making the lunar event even more impressive is that fact that tonight's moon is also a 'supermoon' - a term describing the moon when it is as close to Earth as its orbit allows. The phenomenon means that tonight's moon will be bigger and brighter than usual. Like the phrase suggests, blue moons are not every day occurrences, as Ken Kennedy, a director at the British Astronomical Association, explains.
