German fighter jets help Korean plane make emergency landing

BERLIN, July 16 — Two German air force jets were deployed late yesterday to escort and help a Korean plane land in Stuttgart after it lost contact with air traffic controllers.

The Korean Air plane with around 200 people was flying from Seoul to Zurich when communication with controllers in southwest Germany broke down.

The fighters were sent and escorted the plane to Stuttgart without incident, an airport spokeswoman told German news agency DPA.

Passengers had to spend the night on camp beds in the terminal before being driven to Zurich in buses early today.

Yesterday’s interception was the second in two days for the German air force. On Friday, two pilots were sent to help an Egyptian plane but the communications problems were fixed before the fighters arrived. — AFP

Camp beds, looks like fun, better than what you would get at heathrow airport in the U.K. I wonder if they got meals? Evening supper, soup and bread roll or breakfast, toast and orange juice?

Meanwhile: Jul 15, 2017

Ryanair plane landed so violently that passengers "feared the landing gear would snap".

The bumpy landing was filmed by a passenger travelling from Fuerteventure in Spain on Friday and shows the nail-biting moment the plane hits the tarmac with a thud.

The passenger filmed the plane coming in to land at Leeds Bradford airport and was hurled forwards by the force.

Other travellers are heard screaming in the footage as the plane touched down. The passenger said he felt as though the aircraft "fell out of the sky" onto the runway.

He added: "I have flown for many years, and this has had to be the first landing where I have thought the main gear was going to collapse.

"Once on the tarmac we were thrown from left to right trying to straighten up.

"Frightening experience."No one was injured in the landing.

A spokesman for Ryanair said: "The aircraft experienced cross winds on approach to Leeds Bradford airport and landed normally and safely."

Earlier this week a Flybe plane carrying 58 passengers was forced to make an emergency landing when its windscreen cracked mid-air.

Emergency services rushed to Southampton Airport, Hampshire, with fire crews from across the county put on alert.

However the budget airline's BE981 flight from Belfast to Southampton was able to make a safe landing at around 8am.

MILWAUKEE --Jul 10, 2017-- Sunday night's storm forced a United flight to land after it was struck by lightning.

Three-hundred and twenty passengers and 10 crew members on United flight 995 headed from San Francisco to O'Hare got quite the jolt on their red-eye.

Maheen Kaleem was one of the passengers who shared what the ride was like when the pilot decided to ground the plane at Mitchell International.

"I did see a flash of lightning, so I just thought we were going through a storm," Kaleem said.

The passengers, including Kaleem, were bussed to O'Hare as the plane was fixed. She made another flight to Washington D.C.

She gave a lot of credit to the pilot and crew for remaining calm during the mid-air scare.

A spokesman for United would not say exactly where the plane was struck or what, if anything, was damaged on the plane.
