Grammar police

Air France jet tried to land and burst into flames:

"More than 300 passengers and crew have escaped death at Toronto airport after an Air France passenger jet skidded off the runway when trying to land and burst into flames."

Somehow I don't think the plane was trying to burst into flames. This is what being an editor does to you - you end up as a nerdy language pedant.

And on a completely unrelated note, please, all of you, do not beat children's handbasins. [This pic is stolen from a Taiwan blog called NiHowdy.]
