Airport Temporarily Closed Due to UXO Find

London, United Kingdom All flights in and out of London City Airport were canceled for nearly a day as an EOD Team from the Royal Navy conducted a disposal operation on a WWII era 1,100 pound bomb found nearby River Thames. In addition to the airport flights being temporarily halted, nearby residents were evacuated.

The bomb was discovered at the George V Dock during pre-planned construction work. London City, the smallest of London's international airports, handled 4.5 million passengers last year. It's located in east London's docklands, an area that was heavily bombed during World War II.
