LH416 Turn-back 7th May

FRA-IAD, turned back around FAMBO, now turned again and heading south-ish towards London. Any gen, folks?

P.S. Guessing it's a medical issue. A kind of orbit over The Wash, now appearing to decend towards Manchester.

Seen by myself, it did indeed land at Manchester.

It did carry out some odd turns just off The Wash, having roughly retraced it's track back towards Frankfurt. "Handy for the QRA lads at Coningsby", I thought.

Currently plodding towards 56N 10W
