Problem at LHR 09:30 16th ?

Wed Jun 16, 2021 8:39 am

All arrivals have stopped and aircraft in holding patterns. VS688 almost made it then went around.
you don't get a second chance to make a first impression!

Slightly tangential - why is it that on Google Maps can I see no aircraft whatsoever at LHR, bar a QF 789 taking off from a runway?

Is nobody home?

Heathrow Noise reports temporary use of both runways due to lots of aircraft in the hold.

Google has some tools that try to remove dynamic things (like airplanes) from maps images.

I had a look on FR24 and around 0900-1000 this morning all departures were subject to a roughly 25-45 minute delay. I guess caused by some short term operational issue.

had a flight today from LHR (BA712) and the captain made an announcement to the effect of the runway needing to be cleared and that they where switching runways, however we then took of on the runway that was in use for most of the morning
