Guessing MX problems, if medical im sure it would of dropped into Cardiff or somewhere closer thats able to take a 747-400, im guessing it will be dumping fuel too to get weight down for landing

I reckon engine failure followed by drift down hence FL200

You would think CWL would be the ideal place to take a MX issue... :p

It looked perfectly normal, last arrival on 27R of the day, parked on 546.

Why? BA have six B744 size hangars at the Number One base and one in the Cathedral Hangar. The main BA maintenance facility is Heathrow not Cardiff.

Engine failure followed by diversion to LHR.
