15/05/2014

A statement from CityJet: ‘The WX 281 flight had just taken off from London City Airport on its way to Florence when the cover of the operating mechanism on the wing became partially detached. The crew followed their standard procedures and, after a discussion with CityJet Maintenance Control, decided to return to London City Airport.  Air Traffic Control were notified and the aircraft returned making a normal approach and landing. Passengers were re-directed on another aircraft and departed with a two hour delay.’
