I just watched Lufthansa 415, Frankfurt to Cancun, make a U turn while passing over London.

The plane then headed toward Calais and I assumed it was returning to Frankfurt. Wrong! Over the Straits of Dover, it made yet another U turn and appeared to be heading toward London to rejoin its original track.

Wrong again! It has now made a large circle over Sussex & Kent and is once again over the Channel.

It isn't squawking any emergency code and has maintained altitude and speed throughout. Might be worth watching.

It's now on final back at Frankfurt.

It eventually landed and was met with emergency services.

I see the flight is now on its way again with a different aircraft D-AIGO, just approaching Brest.

Thanks for the info Kelvin, do you know any reason for the turn around. Thanks Bryan.

Hi Bryan. Not a clue, I am afraid. I have been looking in the usual places but nothing found. Cheers

Hey up Brian,

It is now reported that it had a problem with the air conditioning. Maybe they could have just opened a window or two! It is interesting how many reports are out there of Lufthansa having problems with air conditioning or "strange smells" in their aircraft.

Thanks Kelvin. I have a friend who has just retired as a BA pilot because of this problem, it's the bleed air system from the engines. Happy Christmas.
