LHR-MIA (Diverted to LHR)

It’s ironic how a day ago I posted a go around and almost needing a diversion back in Lisbon but this time I actually had to divert back since I didn’t have enough fuel to make it to Miami and I caught on early so it wasnt that far to divert back to I was in a rush and I put fuel for 7hrs instead of 9

Expected flight time: (9h 17m) (Actual: 1h 14m)
Server: Expert
Plane: Boeing 777-200ER
Callsign: American 57 Heavy

Boarding and refueling to go to Miami… or so I thought


Checked my fuel, 6hrs remaining and miami is 8hrs so I decided to turn back… tell the passengers the reason and fuel dumped and we are on our way back to heathrow

Final approach caught by a planespotter

Cool and original topic, love it! Next time you dump fuel, if you’re not in hurry, if you want to make it more realistic on the radar, i suggest you to make holding pattern like the most typical situation! But no all the pilot having the time to make circling, but this happening only in case of a serious problem and no time.

Anyway just a suggestion,

Have a nice day


I like the topic, make sure to bring more fuel!

I thought about doing a holding pattern but I wasn’t bothered enough to do it 😂
