The 'Miracle of Heathrow' may have been just a plane arriving at Heathrow and not some magical astronominical event. Many observers spotted the object coming from the East and appear to rest next to some makeshift accommodation. Many were confused about where it came from and what is was but then realised that East can be both a place and a direction.
The beleaguered Heathrow boss agreed it was a 'wonderful sight to behold' and a 'bloody miracle' but said it was not a religious experience.
"I never thought I'd see another one land before the end of my career but I've just made it by a few days," he said.
Passengers though felt differently and hailed the sighting as a modern day miracle.
"It's still a miracle and an answer to my prayers," said one passenger from his tent. "It's a rare event and I still believe we witnessed something special last night."
Many passengers were seen bearing duty free gifts and sleeping bags.
"Some passengers were going on about the 'second coming' but I've no idea when the second one's coming. Let's just be thankful and full of praise that the first one has arrived," said the Heathrow boss.
