On Friday 12 July 2013 London Heathrow airport’s 2 runways were closed to incoming traffic as a result of a fire on an Ethiopian Airways Boeing 787 Dreamliner. As a result of this brief closure, a number of aircraft were forced to divert. This video captures many of those diverted to London Stansted, subsequently departing. The diversions made for a very nice scene at STN with many more aircraft types, and liveries than we are used to.
The video includes Jet Airways of India, Boeing 777-300 VT-JEK, Kuwait AIrways Airbus A340 9K-ANB, British Airways Boeing 747-400 G-CIVA, BA Airbus A320’s and A319’s including G-EUPG in the Golden Dove livery. Also an Scandinavian SAS A320 OY-KAO mixed in with other regular STN Traffic.
I hope you enjoy the diversity.
