It was slightly odd because the previous 3 or 4 flights got into MAN. I assumed he was diverting to BHX when he initially turned south but appeared to have second thoughts as to whether he should have another go at MAN or perhaps he was just assessing the best alternate. In the event he diverted to LHR.Just watching Virgin 363 (ISB -MAN, A330-300, G-VLUV), made one approach to MAN, before climbing to 15000ft and heading south. It got as far as Cannock before turning north and now seems to be in a holding pattern between Stone and Cannock.
Not seen anything posted here, howver it appears we had a Beluga divert in this afternoon.
This report was in the local Bristol paper this afternoon. Of local interest in the Bristol area because of the Airbus facility.It's showing on the FR24 BHX departures as outbound tomorrow at 15:15 as BGA164D to TLS. However, there is no indication of it's arrival at BHX. I'm aware that Airbus are going to lease the Belugas for outsized cargo, but would BHX have the equipment to load/unload the aircraft?
Looking through today's arrivals on FR24, all of TUI's flights appear to have operated late. Also, both today's and tomorrow's (Sunday) Turkish flights are cancelled.
Thanks for the info, Matt. I wonder if there might be an aircraft upgrade on the Turkish, to cope with delayed passengers.TUI's time keeping has been awful last few weeks, not certain if its down to the handling agent, or lack of checking staff for TUI? Need to get it sorted for summer asap!! Heavy snow in Istanbul again, causing delays & cancellations.
