On Friday 23rd November 2018, a 777-200ER United Airlines from Amsterdam Schipol to Houston had to make an emergency landing at Edinburgh airport in Scotland. The flight had taken-off 15 minutes late out of Amsterdam.
The plane had a nice climb and reached its cruising altitude of 32,000 feet high (FL320) when the emergency was declared. 30 minutes into the flight, and thanks to the Flight Radar 24 application, a sudden U-Turn was noticed and the plane appeared in red (meaning emergency) over Scotland.
The plane made a 360 over Scotland to descend and was diverted to Edinburgh (EGPH). The plane landed safely at the airport and was brought to the gate. The reason for this emergency was due to medical reasons, announced the spokesmen for United Airlines, people think a crew member on board the aircraft was feeling unwell and had to bring the plane to a diversion.
After 2 hours, the plane received the all clear and took-off out of Edinburgh to Houston.
