A passenger plane due to land at Edinburgh Airport was forced to make a mid-air diversion, landing 70 miles away in South Ayrshire.
Flight KLM1279 was due to arrive into Edinburgh Airport around midday on Tuesday but was diverted to Prestwick Airport in Glasgow.
The South Ayrshire airport confirmed that they received a diversion request from a KLM Cityhopper which landed and all passengers disembarked.
Flight Radar showed that the flight was en-route to Edinburgh from Amsterdam and was scheduled to land in the capital at 12.08pm before its diversion.
A Glasgow Prestwick Airport spokesperson said: “We received a divert request from a KLM Cityhopper passenger plane earlier today. It landed and all passengers disembarked.”
KLM has been contacted for comment.
