The disruption at Heathrow has forced some of the acts due to perform at Radio 1's Big Weekend in Derry to pull-out. A Radio 1 spokesperson said:
"Radio 1's Big Weekend kicked off on Friday afternoon in Derry-Londonderry and we've got a weekend of amazing acts and DJs ahead of us.
"Unfortunately due to the travel disruption affecting Heathrow we've had to cancel a few performances but we've still got an exciting line up for our audiences and we're looking forward to a fantastic weekend of music!"
Cancelled performances include Aluna George and Angel Haze on the Radio 1Xtra Stage.
Coverings on both engines were left unlatched after maintenance on the BA plane in last week's Heathrow landing drama according to a report.
A BA jet was forced to make an emergency landing after one engine caught fire and the cowling of the other blew-off.
