I actually saw this Thomsonfly 757 circling several times . I first noticed it at 17-30hrs and saw the landing gear down which I thought was odd but did'nt take much notice at the time as I was busy preparing dinner until 17-55hrs when it was heading in an easterly direction towards Nottingham, inbound for Runway 27. I then realised that Thomsonfly don't come in to EMA
at that time of day
It landed at safely at EMA
It HAD taken off from Doncaster, Robin Hood Airport, ( as stated by NEMA) at 15-50hrs BST,bound for Corfu when it developed problems with the front landing gear. Saw the news report on Central News. Everyone on board was safe.
on the aircraft? I thought it looked like G-BYAF.
Being ill sucks. Never take life for granted!!
