A Delta Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing at Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina after a mechanical issue caused the plane to collide with the runway on its underside. Reports suggest the aircraft’s nose gear was not in the correct position when it arrived at the airport. The incident is currently under investigation to determine the exact cause of the emergency landing.
On Wednesday, a Boeing 717-200 aircraft carrying 96 passengers was forced to make a turbulent landing without its wheels properly down. Passengers had to grip tightly onto their seats as they were struck with fear on this journey. Thankfully, no injuries were reported, with everyone onboard – 2 pilots, 3 flight attendants and 96 customers – being evacuated safely. A video of the terrified passengers showing the anxious moments as they prepared for a potentially hazardous landing has gone viral worldwide.
