Airbus A320-232, G-EUUU


The aircraft was on final approach to land and was experiencing airframe icing. At about 1,700 ft, airframe buffet was felt which the crew thought was pre-stall buffet. The crew increased the aircraft’s approach speed and the buffet reduced. It disappeared completely at 500 ft and the aircraft landed without further incident. It was probable that the buffet was due to ice accretion on the top surface of the wings and was not pre-stall buffet.
