Gatwick’s only runway had to close yet again this morning following another emergency situation, this time with UIA.

Aircraft is due to depart to Kiev very soon-boarding now, as I type:)

Bit of a non-story if the runway is shut for 10 minutes - pretty sure there are periods of no arrivals and no departures longer than that!
Heard what I thought was an aircraft go missed (right under final approach so I don't expect to hear takeoff power roar and rumble!), confirmed it was an Easyjet going round on FR24 and then watched the following TAP go missed and the Monarch flight following that break off early. So I suspected some sort of minor incident on the runway, and Charley B very kindly filled me in on the details!
