The wind has just started picking up at the airport, and changed to a Northerly. Wind has reahed 45km and a gust of 75 has been reported.
So far all flights have landed but Edelweiss is the first to divert to Porto Santo.
EasyJet Gatwick just aborted and may try again. Nope it looks like its diverting to the Canary Islands.
Poor passengers that have been stuck at the airport, and on the Island, and all those trying to get to the Island.
I had this ready to post earlier, so after a few diversions, most flights will have landed now.
This was the airport earlier.
Happy to put a credit if anyone knows who took the photo.
