Nothing showing up in TACT for any delays owing to this event; likewise no ANM or AIM giving anything away.

Saw a VLM F-50 at STN yesterday at 9-10am- ish, local.

RWY was closed for a short time, as the A/C needed a tug to get of the runway. Gnd staff told me they evacuated on the rwy, but noone I spoke with knew why they did so.

Guess they diverted from London City, since VLM have no scheduled service to STN, but anyway STN might be better suited for emergencies like this....???

This is a very quiet time of the day at STN, as most (all) RYR and EZY are gone to their destinations.

I was told to expect holding at ABBOT, and flew mim cln speed from Amsterdam to STN to avoid any extra delay. No further delay at STN when I got here though.
