Daily Star grounded

MediaGuardian reports that copies of the Daily Star were taken off sale at Gatwick and Manchester airports because of this alarming front page.
The graphic of a jet with its engines on fire used to illustrate the Star's splash comes from a TV documentary about an incident 28 years ago in which a BA 747's engines were knocked out by a volcanic ash cloud. The documentary, previously broadcast on the National Geographic channel, is to be shown on Channel 5 tonight.

Hmmm. A 28 year old pic? What next? Weary holidaymakers return home (illustrated by Dunkirk pic from 1940)?
