Its always 12 Noon Somewhere

At noon yesterday, BST, a flight from Tehran touched down at London Heathrow, a scheduled British Airways daily service, its cargo, slightly more interesting to the World's press than normal, the freed UK service personnel arriving back from Iran.

At noon yesterday, ninety miles West of Heathrow on another runway at RAF Lyneham, Wiltshire, a military transport aircraft was touching down, with the bodies of two British service personnel.

And to show that the UK isn't quite as paranoid about showing photographs of coffins being brought back from Iraq and other war zones the country is involved in, a photo of the coffin being carried onto the tarmac was shown on the front of a national newspaper, along with a picture of the returning fifteen personnel.

The Truthiness Blog Says ; There's nothing wrong with letting the media show pictures of service people's coffins, it might remind people that actual real people are being killed over there.
