Kenyan Aircraft Emergency Lands in London Following Mishap

On February 15, shortly after takeoff from Heathrow Airport in London towards Nairobi Kenya, an aircraft encountered a technical issue.

According to sources with knowledge of the situation, the aircraft was forced to return to Heathrow Airport after dropping fuel.

After flying through Dartford, Rochester, and New Romney, the aircraft had technical difficulties in the Atlantic Ocean. This forced it to turn around and head back to London, according to a spot check on Flightradar24.

The flight was scheduled to land in Nairobi at 9:45 p.m. on February 15. However, the aircraft was still grounded at Heathrow Airport as of the time this report was published.
