Why Did BEA Flight 548 Stall in Mid-Air?
A memorial service for the dozens of victims has been held every year at the crash site since Sadly, tragedy struck just seconds into the flight as the Trident 1 G-ARPI plummeted into a field near Staines after its engine stalled, killing all passengers on board and six crew members.

Former nurse recalls 1972 Trident plane crash in Staines
British European Airways Flight was a scheduled passenger flight from London Heathrow to Brussels that crashed near the town of Staines, England, soon after take-off on 18 June , killing all people on board. The accident became known as the Staines air disaster and, as of , remains the deadliest air accident as opposed to a terrorist incident to take place in the United Kingdom and it marks as the highest death toll involving a Hawker Siddeley Trident. The aircraft suffered a deep stall in the third minute of its flight and crashed to the ground, narrowly missing a busy main road. The ensuing inquest principally blamed the captain for failing to maintain airspeed and configure the high-lift devices correctly. It also cited the captain's heart condition and the limited experience of the co-pilot, while noting an unspecified "technical problem" that the crew apparently resolved before take-off. The crash took place against the background of a pilots' strike that had caused bad feelings between crew members.
An annual service was held to remember the people who were killed when a British European Airways flight came down in a field in Staines in June The now year-old still lives in the same Birch Green house as of 43 years ago when two brothers, Trevor and Paul Burke, knocked on her front door to tell her they had seen a plane crash behind her house on that fateful afternoon of Sunday June The sound was of the wreckage of British European Airways Flight , which had fallen from the sky when its engine stalled just seconds into the flight as it made its way to Brussels. The former Ashford Hospital accident and emergency nurse of six years would jump over a six foot wall in order to make her way to the crash site to help any of those on board who may have survived. The next thing I saw was this aircraft and the tail was sticking up in the air. It had broken off. When I saw it I was amazed.
