Emergency Landings in Stockholm and Malmö
An Austrian Airlines jet landed safely in Stockholm Tuesday, after problems with its landing gear doors.
The Fokker 70, with 85 people onboard, landed at Arlanda airport as emergency vehicles stood by. The airliner was on its way from Vienna to Stockholm when a warning system showed a problem. The pilot made a pass over the airport so ground controllers could verify that the landing gear was extended, and the aircraft was cleared to land.
Another Stockholm-bound flight, operated by the budget carrier FlyMe, was forced to return to Malmö’s Sturup airport Tuesday, after colliding with a flock of geese during take-off. One of the plane’s engines malfunctioned after the collision, but the plane landed safely. None of the 98 passengers was injured.
