Trying to recall novel about London Airport ground crew

Can anyone remember a novel from many years ago, I am trying to trace a copy.
As far as I recall, it is based at "London Airport" and concerns some emergencies/incidents dealt with by ground crews.

The only details I can recall are:

There's bad weather and someone is injured while measuring the depth of rain water on an active runway.
An aircraft is disabled (undercarriage problem?) and someone is trapped under it???
Also I believe there was a map/plan of the old LAP layout concerning "block numbers" that helped the reader understand where things were happening.

Sorry it's so sketchy, but I remember it was a page-turner for me in my younger days!

Here's hoping and thanx in advance for any info.....
