LH441 A380 diverted from FRA to STR

Sun Oct 29, 2017 7:23 am

This morning diverted from Frankfurt.
On Flight tracking it looks like after a go around at FRA.
Planespotters may now view the A380 visitor at Stuttgart.
Does anyone know why the diversion?

today there are heavy storms over large parts of europe

woods, parks and cementerys are closed
some railtracks are switched off

in the moment 29th of oktob. about 11am gmt gusts at about 120km/h in city areas
gusts about 170km/h at the flat land outside cities

this is maybe not really large numbers for US hurricane levels but is definitly significant for europ

maybe thats the reason for the diversion

Strong winds in northern Germany and surrounding areas. The A380 circled a bit hoping for better weather and diverted to STR when it got low on fuel. First A380 with passengers to land in STR but not the first A380 ever. Frankfurt's neighboring airports in Stuttgart and Cologne (and some others) receive diversions fairly often, although narrowbodies are more common.
An Atlasair 744F also diverted from Frankfurt-Hahn to STR.
