Anyone know why 27L was closed for about 20 mins this afternoon? I think i saw an A340 to be the last aircraft landing on 27L. After that 27R had alternating Take Offs and Landings for about 20mins. Rwy 27L was back to normal shortly after!

Well there obviously wasn't a serious crash, or we'd have all heard by now. So, why all the excitment? Probably just a precautionary measure if it was for only 20 minutes. Just checking for F.O.D in all likelyhood.....

In the morning I know there was hydraulic fluid reported on one of the taxi ways at T4, taxi way Tango or Whisky, not sure. And i'm not sure how the fluid got there in the first place or if this might have been the cause of the runway closure.
