Fog at Manchester
« on: January 28, 2009, 09:14:45 PM »
I hope this qualifies as a "screen shot", if not I apologise. It's captured with RadarBox data anyway. Here's a Google Earth 'movie' of the chaos the ensued this morning Wednesday 28th January when fog covered Manchester airport. Aircraft still kept arriving at their usual rate but they had to be stacked because the minimum landing separation was increased due to the fog. Listening in on my scanner I could hear flight DLH2YJ complaining about running short of fuel and saying he would soon have to divert to Birmingham. After more than half an hour of spinning round in circles he was cleared in to land 3 minutes before his "divertion time" was due.
