Interesting, just seen this-
The M1 motorway, which runs next to East Midlands airport and directly under short final for runway 27 ([map] (ttps://goo.gl/maps/THHxtZzqJoG2)), was closed both ways for around 20mins last night to allow the approach of Jet2 flight LS670 from Gran Canaria to land, after the pilot reported a ‘fault indication’. The airport authorities (and presumably the pilot) took the decision to close the M1 as a ‘precaution’.
Scary, must have been serious- double engine failure perhaps? Reminds me of the Kegworth air disaster (which I should definitely make a topic on). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kegworth_air_disaster
