BAW 218 7th April Denver LHR unpressurised?

From flightaware this flight appears to have operated at 10,000ft all the way home.
It was making quite a noise when it passed over Windsor on the approach to LHR.

Would be very surprised if it could make it all that way at 10000ft.

You are perfectly correct. Except that FlightAware by default shows altitude in metres, not feet.

Well that's reassuring, at least.

flightradar24.com shows the flight that started APR 06 and landed APR 07 at FL370 until just south of Liverpool and at FL100 just south of Aylesbury. If true, it must have been a late depressurisation.

Iím surprised it was making a noise, thought it would be gliding part of it.

It is necessary to get near the ground to make a landing :-)

Flightaware had it at 10,000.
It was the noise that caused me to look it up.
But if all good I am delighted.

If you register as a member with FlightAware, you can configure it to display using whichever units you are most used to - feet instead of metres, for example.

Might help to avoid embarrassment next time.

I think that's the difference between someone who just pops on to PPRuNe for a bit of info and those who appear to live here. The former don't feel 'embarrassment' on an anonymous website.

One should never feel embarrassed about feeling embarrassment.
