There was another Qantas jumbo at manchester this morning at about 600am,
it made a missed approach then eventually landed.
Once on the Ground he asked GND control to thank all the controllers for there help,
Does anyone know why it was diverted and what the problem was??
i wouldn't have thought it was due to weather at LHR as the weather at MAN was terrible eg the missed app

It would be the weather - from what I can remember looking at forecasts at this time last night, LHR's weather was gonig to be marginally worse than MAN. I gather from a thread on another forum that some LHR aircraft diverted to AMS.
