Odd, there is nothing mentioned on RingwayReports.

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

TCX512K is a BRS-ACE flight - after take off this morning there were some warning lights displayed in the cockpit - don't know what for though.

The aircraft circled CWL for some time burning off fuel, but it then diverted to MAN as TCX have their engineering team there.


As I write (11:00pm) TCX512F is just about to depart BRS enroute to MAN.

How? When it left MAN, 30 minutes previos from the diversion? And it is parked on the same remote stand as when it diverted in.

Different aircraft?

Anyhow TCX have had a 757-200, G FCLE, covering the A320 @ BRS today, doing the AGA flight (TCX558K/L). It's due to leave in the next half hour or so to position to GLA as TCX558F

If TCX512K is a BRS flight, then why did the aircraft start from MAN? G-FCLE was standby aircraft along with another 757, it stepped in when G-BXKD diverted in.

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
