Just over 10 years since the same flight had to land in Iceland because of a bomb alert.
Nobody has mentioned it, but I suppose it had to dump fuel over the Channel.

there was not a bomb on board vs027 in 2012 may be same flight number but different aircraft, that is the only way it is linked if there was a bomb alert we would of known about it besides it was just smoke and a possibe fire on board

"Tom Alridge said one of the cabin crew panicked upon landing.

"She was screaming - 'Get off, get off' - she was literally pushing people down the chute," he said."

Err.. forgive me for stating the obvious, but I don't think the stewardess was "panicking". I think it's called "doing her job".
