BA83 returns to LHR three hours after takeoff

Thu Nov 28, 2019 2:14 am

It looks like BA flight 83 on Tuesday from LHR to ABV (Abuja, Nigeria) had to turn back while over the English channel.

Does anyone know why?

If you watch the playback it was actually only in the air for about 50 minutes. For some reason the tracking starts at 8:50 but it doesn't take off until 10:50 and it lands almost an hour later.
