Quoting HARLEYF150 (Thread starter): Does anybody have any information about a Thomas Cook A320 G-BXKD which made an emergency landing on runway 24L this morning
Iccident was approx. 14.00, at the time 24R was in use, as it was single runway operation. Landed on 24L to minimise disruption, I actually first thought it was doing a touch and go on 24L!
Was followed across 24R and all the way to stand 70L. Not sure on what the cause was, but the worrying thing is that it was just released from Monarch Engineering about 2 hours before departure.

Not sure if this was a separate incident because the incident on 24L this morning happened around 10.30am just as Virgin 75 to Orlando was taxiing out and also a SAS 737 used 24R instead of 24L there were also 2 go around's during that time as well

Quoting Jetset7E7 (Reply 7): If TCX512K is a BRS flight, then why did the aircraft start from MAN?
It didn't - it diverted to MAN, where presumably the passengers were transferred to another aircraft and continued there journey to ACE - probably with a similar flight number.
Holiday makers returning from their holiday in Lanzarote were returned to BRS - though probably delayed.
The aircraft that operated ACE-BRS then positioned to MAN as TCX512F
