AA 757 diversion closes Dublin
« on: August 03, 2012, 07:34:36 PM »
AAL155 (LHR-BOS, N172AJ) diverted to Dublin Friday evening following nosewheel hydraulics problems. Embarrassingly it came to a halt at the intersection of BOTH runways, closing down the airport for 30mins+. Controller did a good job of stacking 15+ arrivals over the Irish Sea although some had to divert to Shannon, Manchester and Belfast.
