Lcy just updated their Facebook page saying the airport is now open. Anyone know what happened?

Jetranger - 2 POB. Runway closed for an hour and a bit.

All good.

So I assume any incoming traffic would divert to LGW or STN then?

Sounds like a hydraulic problem. Thats really the only emergency in a jetranger that would make the aircraft unflyable following an emergency, as the failure would require a runway to make a run-on landing. Its not too tough to fly the Jetranger without hydraulics outside of effective translational lift but almost impossible to hover. Any kind of transmission or engine chip wouldnt close the airport as a normal approach to a hover anywhere else would be possible. The only other thing I could think of would be an engine failure, structural damage or fire, which I would doubt as you probably wouldnt make the airport in an auto unless you right on top of it.

I've been in an auto in a Jetranger, and there was not much time to adjust where we ended up. Our pilots were instructed to aim for grass when possible, so my guess is that they landed on the grass strip next to the runway. Still, a position like that would interfere with LCY traffic.
