Snippet from today's Guardian:-

"Approximately every 11 days, a British Airways airliner jettisons
 one-and-a-half juggernaut-loads of untaxed fuel before landing at
 its destination."

The original information is taken from the British Airways Environmental
Report 1994, which records 33 occurrences totalling 1260 tonnes in one year.

(The same issue of the Guardian also contains a fascinating "story so far"
account of the "investigations" into the bombing of Pan Am flight 103
six and a half years ago.)
