The flight was a shared service with TAB and UVF to LGW. So it was due to pick up more passengers at UVF. We can speculate at this point but I was there and it could've been a much worse end result. Let's be thankful for that. That apocalyptic weather did some serious damage to our island.

18 passengers on a a330?

That was a real loser of a flight. Carry only 18 passengers plus get your aircraft damaged.

Perhaps it's time to build a larger culvert?

Surely if it was awash with debris, you'd see it and not land???

Brown, under muddy water landing lights might have been a clue?
