Another long term resident departs Luton
Gulfstream 3 N103VV (346) departed Luton this morning heading for Keflavik and Albany. This is the former VP-BHR which used to be a regular visitor here. I believe this last flew in July 2011 so had been on the ground at Luton for nearly 5 years, most of the time hangared. Shortly after departing Luton, it declared an emergency and diverted to Glasgow and was met by the Fire Brigade. Continued it's journey later that same afternoon.
