Stansted Airport closes to all arriving flights

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-25316976

No flights are being allowed to land at Stansted Airport because the airport's landing equipment has been damaged.

Air accident investigators are investigating an "incident" at the airport earlier in which part of the instrument landing system was damaged by an inbound flight.

Due to the damage, and because of fog and poor visibility, no planes are being allowed to land at the airport.

The plane involved was a Gulfstream G550 jet, which landed safely.

1. Re: Stansted Airport closes to all arriving flights

Earlier this morning an arriving Gulfstream G550 was involved in an incident that has resulted in some damage to our ILS (instrument landing system).

The aircraft landed safely.

As a result of this incident and low visibility there have been restrictions on arriving flights.

However, the fog has now lifted and arriving flights are now being accepted.

Departing flights are unaffected at this time but there could be delays and cancellations later in the day as a result of the earlier disruption to inbound aircraft.

We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused.
