BA plane forced to land in Manchester after midair emergency

A British Airways passenger plane has indicated an emergency on board while flying from Glasgow to London this morning. Passengers on the BA9275 flight were issued a 7700 alert as the plane flew over the border between England and Scotland at 11:49am.

The plane left Glasgow Airport at 11:28am on Friday, and was due to land at London Heathrow Airport for 12:14pm.

But the ‘Squawk 770’ alert was set off about 25 minutes before the flight was due to land.

These alerts are used to identify an aircraft that has a possible issue and allows it to have priority over other air traffic.

A map of the plane’s route shows that it circled over Manchester Airport twice just before midday.
