Heathrow denies four planes in distress were turned away

It was reported in the Sunday Times that Heathrow had denied four planes that made Mayday calls in high winds. Three of the four were close to running out of fuel; another had problems with its rudder.

The planes were diverted to other airports and were met by emergency response teams.

Heathrow officials deny that the airport turned away planes in distress, saying that the story in the paper is not true and that no calls for help were ever received.

A fifth flight, one from Moscow to Heathrow, was also sent to another airport because of the gale-force winds around Heathrow. A journalist who was on the flight tweeted, saying it was the scariest flight he’d ever been on.
