A plane carrying a prince makes an unplanned landing

A British Airways Airbus A320 had to turn unexpectedly. On board were Britain’s Prince Edward and his wife, Countess Sophie.

The plane, registered G-EUUD, took off at 11:30 am local time from London Heathrow on its way to Gibraltar. After flying for about half an hour, the pilots decided to return to the airport from which the machine had left. At that time the plane was off Jersey (near the northwest coast of France). Just before 1:00 PM, the A320 landed safely at Heathrow Airport.

Technical problem

The reason for the return was related to a technical issue. “The arrival of the Earl and Countess of Wessex to Gibraltar was slightly delayed after their flight was safely diverted to Britain due to a technical problem,” the Governor of Gibraltar said. daily expression† As a precaution, the pilots decided to fly back to Heathrow Airport. “Alternative arrangements are being made for their Royal Highnesses to arrive in Gibraltar later today and the program will be adjusted accordingly,” the governor said. Eventually a replacement plane will be arranged to take them to Gibraltar. It is not known when exactly this left.

Platinum Anniversary

The last unplanned landing was a visit to Gibraltar as part of Queen Elizabeth’s platinum jubilee celebrations. Elizabeth at a young age pledged to serve the country all her life. Today, it still keeps that promise. However, the Spanish government is not waiting for the arrival of the Wessexes. The island is still claimed to be part of Spain. So border regulations are the talk of the day between the UK and the EU. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs was said to have expressed its “dissatisfaction” with the royal visit.
