Is it FR24, or is UA98 now heading north East to Sydney as it was flying over Gippsland towards Melbourne?? :shock:
To watch a Boeing 747 land or takeoff.

From what Ive read, it was due to the strong winds at Melbourne Airport.
A second flight also from US diverted to Sydney. That had to be QF 94.
The Virgin flight flew over me in the Yarra Valley about 5:30am

The Virgin flight had a ground speed of 90 kts on final, with 47kts of wind on touchdown, only a little bumpy below about 500 age but otherwise quite smooth. Not sure of the need to divert based on the TAF or TTF or ATIS for that matter
