    Aviation authorities are investigating a serious incident at Dublin Airport in which a Ryanair plane taxied the wrong way down a runway on which other planes were about to land.

    Ryanair flight FR227, from London Stansted to Dublin, missed its exit and made a 180-degree turn at the end of the runway, before heading back the way it had come – causing other flights to abort or delay landings, the Irish Mail on Sunday can reveal.

    Dramatic recordings of Air Traffic Control communications, which have been heard by the MoS, describe how the Ryanair flight had to ‘brake hard’. Other planes were ordered ‘go around’.

    It happens many a times when an aircraft cannot exit (overshoots) from a specific taxiway due to many reasons. And as the other landing traffic is so tightly spaced, a few of them have to execute a missed approach. A 180-degree turn on the runway is made when no taxiways are available at the runway end. This of course is done with ATC's clearance.
