Virgin A346 & Other Diversions At LGW On March 2nd.

Fri Mar 02, 2012 10:07 pm

A VS A346 G-VWIN turned up here at LGW today as a diversion which came from Cape Town. Also a couple LCY diversions which LGW ended up with a LH City Regional E-190 D-AECA and a BA City Flyer E-190 G-LCYL coming here.
Also there were a diversion or too from Biggin Hill.

I guess this was to do with the fog?

The quite rare aircraft which were at LGW today:

Meh, you can have the VS340 and the LCY flights, we had a 787 divert into LHR from Frankfurt

Haha I heard! You damn lucky...!  Don't worry you win this time, but LGW will beat LHR and get a scheduled 787 first (I hope) haha.
