The BBC was then compared to the “Daily Mail” that it’s “human error,” acted, not a question a conscious attempt “to send Anti-EU Propaganda”, as some viewers claimed.
Theresa May would “BBC on this way, the travel to Brussels”
An editor tweeted after the accident: “For those who are wondering – a simple human error at the end of #BBCNewsSix. Due to a production error, the images that have been previously used to the story of Biggin Hill to announce were shown, now, in our Top Story-summary at the conclusion of the Show. Pretty sure the Prime Minister will not travel in this way to Brussels, when it should be ready.”
For those wondering – a simple human error at end of #BBCNewsSix. A production mistake meant pictures used earlier to tease a story about Biggin Hill ended up in our top story recap at close of show. If and when it happens, pretty certain PM not travelling to Brussels like this. pic.twitter.com/P2yXMnkkCK

The neck with the Black-and-White images of aircraft from the Second world war, was part of a report on the opening of a Museum on the military airfield in Biggin Hill, in the County of Kent. From there, a lot of Spitfire fighter planes started to fight against the German Luftwaffe.
In the social networks of the television clip was shared several thousand times, and caused the audience also for a number of amused responses.
