What are all those trucks for anyway? Looks like a riot.

Thomsonfly diverted their inbound flight to Manchester at the same time. Everbody else circled and waited to land. Still dont know what it was though.

On Wednesday last week the Thomsonfly did'nt land at LBA because the B757-200 Aircraft would not lock on to the runway 32 ILS. So he tried a second visual approach and still could not capture the ILS on runways 32 apporach. So He decided to go divert to Manchester. This is where the aircraft was ment to be posistioning to later on that evening. Thomsonfly don't operate into LBA on Thursdays anymore. The Las Palmas service pax now have to fly from Donny since it was axed last month.
