If he was anywhere near the English Channel enroute EGNX-EPRZ, he was lost.

News coming from where? Nothing on AV Herald. If something was so serious as to need evacuation why spend so long in the air diverting? But then again, as David Reid says, if the were en-route to Poland it was probably the N. Sea. EMA could then have been nearest suitable. Those bits of dark murky waters all look the same.

Can't have been life or death, on FR24 he squawked 7700 over Ipswich, did a U turn and headed back to EMA. Flight was EMA-RZE so unlikely overweight landing if he needed to land anywhere quickly. SEN, NWI, even STN much nearer.

You can see the trace on flight finder. It was indeed east of Essex. Indeed STN is closer. So what was the problem? Was there an evacuation? Nothing on AV Herald, Ryanair or EMA websites. Mystery.

Mind you; FL270 & 400kts might, afterall, put STN a little close, especially with all the briefing & planning etc. Just depends on the nature of the problem.

FlightAware shows the complete flight (matches scoopnest partial flight map linked to previously). No other information, though.

Oh dear.

I have too many jokes in my head right now.

Putting them aside, doesn't social media provide any clues? Pax nowadays are more than happy to document everything.

Liked the photo by Farrell, as I knew little about this carrier and as there seems to be little news about the incident I looked it up on the web. Here is what I found:

The Meaning of Ryanair

I wondered if the following from the above article is true:

As the pilots sip the water they have bought themselves and the flight attendants hurry along the aisles in the uniforms they have paid for out of their own pockets, barking curt, dismissive orders at the bewildered and the non-compliant...

So I thought maybe someone had left their water bottles behind and was having a tantrum.

By the way what is the meaning of the winged lady with boobs on the tail.

Chronus, you are seriously disturbing my calm by your remarks... I can feel the jokes bursting inside me, desperately wanting to be written down!

To keep things in order: the symbol on the tail is a mix between some ancient Irish (half)goddess and a music instrument called "lyra" in Swedish. I have no idea what it is called in English.

Just like the shamrock, the harp has been a long standing symbol of Ireland, and is still used as the official seal of the State and of the President.

The representation of a harp as a winged female figure stretched across the front and top of the instrument was for a time used as the flag of Ireland from about the 17th century. As those in the UK will know, this symbol is still used today as the representation of Northern Ireland on the Royal Standard.

I can only guess that back in the early 1990's when Ryanair changed its livery from the original "3 R's" to the first version of the current branding, it was looking for something that reflected "Irish" and could challenge it's main rival of the time Aer Lingus and its Shamrock.

The harp device logos Ryanair uses are protected trade marks and nothing to do with the Irish harp.

English Channel
Personally I prefer to use La Manche as it's a little more neutral.

Well that may be so, but if so, and as JAS has gone to the trouble to highlight for us, the use of the mythical Celtic goddess Erin and the harp on something Irish isn't exactly original, now is it?

Personally I prefer to use terms like English Channel and Irish Sea, as like Erin's harp, it offers built in clues about where we're from

Anyway, returning to the main event, no further clues about what beset FR7622 this morning?
