A passenger plane has crash- landed short of a runway at Heathrow Airport , ripping off part of its undercarriage. 'Near miracle'. Fire crews doused the plane in foam to prevent its fuel tanks catching fire.

Investigators say since the emergency landing Super T Aviation has made changes to its flight checklist procedures and submitted them to Transport Canada.

The changes include making it easier to monitor the fuel tanks, changing when the crew is to look at a checklist that deals with fuel, putting more details into onboard quick reference handbooks and making them easier to read.

"When fuel management SOPs (standard operating procedures) are not in place, fuel starvation can occur even if there is sufficient fuel remaining on board the aircraft to complete the planned flight," said the report released Thursday.

"If flight crews do not complete checklist procedures in their entirety, opportunities to rectify emergency situations can be lost."

The report notes that once the crew decided the plane couldn't make it to the airport, they did a good job of making the emergency landing.
