Boeing 747-236B, G-BDXP


The flight departed from Boston USA and was inbound to London Heathrow Airport (LHR). The 1800 hrs Terminal Aerodrome Forecast (TAF) for LHR, obtained en-route by the crew, indicated that surface winds could increase to a value in excess of the aircraft crosswind limitation at the expected time of arrival. The crew reviewed the available alternates and decided that London Stansted Airport would be the most suitable in the event of LHR being unavailable.
