UAE17 almost 90L now into Manchester and still unable to land

How much extra fuel do the likes of Emirates carry?

Just been on the moor behind my house with my  trusty hand held anemometer. At 350m the mean speed was 53 mph, gusting 75 mph. With continuous moderate sleet 10 minutes was more than enough.

Landings suspended for now at Manchester, all flights holding. For UAE17 and the Virgin 747 they'll have plenty in reserve for diversions with contingency plans having been dealt with prior to departure. Prestwick/Glasgow are normally the favored diversion airfields.

Section of the M56 near Helsby now closed as is the The Thelwall Viaduct. Seeing reports of local power outages too with traffic lights out at busy junctions.

Newcastle is also available if they can't get to Glasgow

Birmingham takes A380's but I suspect it is too rough there as well

Landing at Brum perhaps? This is fascinating viewing!

It will be Birmingham as the runway faces the direction to where the winds are coming from to land into
