It reminds me of the air-crash at Staines in (I think) the early 1970s. It was a large passenger plane, perhaps a Comet - or something similar. In the wreckage there was found some graffiti on the flight-deck, being rude about the Captain (Captain X or Fred Bloggs for present purposes).

The graffiti said, "When Fred Bloggs dies, who will be God's representative at British Airways?"
I think it was a Trident.
