The British Airways pilot hailed as a hero after flying a stricken plane over Bedfont to crash land at Heathrow in January has been involved in an engine scare.
The throttle control of an engine on the BA plane failed for more than a minute on Sunday last week as it flew from Calcutta.
But Mr Coward, dubbed 'Calamity' because of his injury prone past, and the crew managed to land the Boeing 777-200 flight as normal.
The chief investigator looking into theHeathrow crash last week said his team is closing in on the answer to the mysterious engine failure.
David King, of the Air Accident Investigation Bureau, has been heading a 150 person investigation into the crash, which saw a Boeing 777 glide to safety over Bedfont homes on January 17, and says answers are expected within weeks.
