    "The aircraft was substantially damaged after striking the airport perimeter fence and a berm"

    I hope I'm not the only one who had to Google "berm"

Not many on new A/C except executive types.
    The RAF VC10s had the inboard reversers deactivated.

    Is Billy a Brighton fan? poor soul......

    I used to live in Hove (actually) before I moved over this side of the pond. Never saw any berms.

    All VC10s had the inboard reverser removed but I believe it was more of a structural consideration than control issues.
    The BBC and CNN cannot currently verify my statement
