Marital Problems Behind Poor Landing
An Irish accident commission has reported that a pilot who landed too fast at Skavsta airport outside Stockholm last year had been suffering martial problems and was due to return to his homeland Australia.
The unnamed 38 year old Australian was on his last trip for Ireland’s low-cost airline Ryanair when the incident occurred on a flight between London’s Standsted airport and Skavsta.
According to the report he began his descent too late and as a result flew the Boeing 737 “outside normal operator and manufacturer’s parameters” as he came in to land.
Despite the mistake he managed to land the plane safely with 184 passengers and five other crew members on board.
