FAULT LED TO PLANE MAYDAY.
When a message requiring the shutting down of the left engine appeared that the captain of the easyJet flight from Barcelona concluded the messages "were probably spurious".
He declared a Mayday and requested a direct routing to Stansted airport as there was fog at Liverpool.
Eventually, the plane, flown manually, landed safely on February 6, 2007.
The AAIB said the cause was likely "an intermittent fault" on the display.
