Continental 777 Emergency At LHR.

Thu Aug 25, 2011 8:26 am

Just noticed a Continental 777 enroute from Houston to London Heathrow, squaking 7700 (general emergency) on flightradar.com.

First became aware of the aircraft squaking an emergency about 0800 UTC (0900 GMT).
Seems to have landed now. Anyone have any additional info regarding this?

Anyone know what happened to this flight? I'll be on a CO 777 from IAH-LHR tomorrow as a matter of fact. What ship was flying the route?

Even though the name on the outside of the aircraft may say UA..... It is not yet UA, UA/CO are still operating as two separate carriers. It even states that when you call CO. I listened to the recording for over an hour today and must have heard that statement every few minutes.
