In October 1996, a couple in a pub garden spotted a body falling from a DC9 over Richmond as it approached Heathrow. Vijay Saini, 19, fell 2,000 feet from the jet and was discovered three days later. A post mortem revealed that he was dead when he tumbled from the plane.

However, his brother Pardeep, 22, survived the 10-hour journey from Delhi in freezing temperatures.

A Romanian stowaway has survived a 97-minute flight from Vienna to Heathrow while clinging to the retracted undercarriage of the aeroplane.
The 20-year-old man, who told British authorities that he crawled "under the wire" of the Vienna airport's perimeter fence on Sunday evening, climbed into the undercarriage of a private Boeing 747 belonging to a high-ranking sheik from the United Arab Emirates.

It was here, in October 1996, that 19-year-old Vijay Saini's own journey ended. He had stowed away in a jet from Delhi in the same way as Ayaz did, and fell out at almost exactly the same spot. His body lay undiscovered for three days. In August 1998 a couple drinking in the nearby Marlborough pub saw another body tumble from a plane, and land on what they thought was the building site of the new Sainsbury's. Despite a widespread police search, that body was never found, and police think it may have landed in a reservoir. There were reports of a fourth body being discovered while the Sainsbury's complex was being built.

Heathrow will start its first three month dual runway trial in November, followed by a second during next summer’s Olympics. The new measure was designed to reduce the time planes circled before landing.

The council said it turned off the phone line on April 1 as part of its £35m cuts programme, but it was convinced residents’ complaints would still “get through” to the authority if they call BAA.
