Danish jet survives landing scare

A Boeing 737 with 145 people on board has landed safely at Copenhagen airport despite suffering problems with its landing gear, Danish media have said.
The plane, belonging to the airline, Jettime, had been flying from Billund to Lanzarote when it developed a fault in its front landing gear, they added.
After dumping fuel, the plane was ordered to land at Copenhagen airport. Danish TV showed the jet touching down on the runway and taxiing to a gate, followed by several rescue vehicles

1: What about stopping reporting non-events ? ( Even if it's great to know but please ... what a Title ... )

2: What about giving a correct Title to the Thread and stop with " Crash , Death , survive , fatal , .... " when nothing happened

3: What about finding OTHER sources than BBC and their " Aeronautical experts " ( didn't know the 737 was able to dump fuel ... missed something during the T/R ) for reporting an event ?

PS: Last week the oven was down and the F/A broke a nail ... should I report smth like " Flight XXX almost crashed : PAX scared because heavily injured F/A due to dramatic equipment failure "

For sure people will read it because the title is so dramatic ... but think about it , Who is giving you the info ...

Regards

It's a non-event, so this thread should be put in one of FR's threads

Cool

Several Ryanair aircraft flew close to Copenhagen where passengers earlier today had a miraculous escape when the pilots found there were no spare bulbs left but didn't think of swapping them with another one.
A Ryanair spokesman said, ""us guv ? your joking it's too expensive to land there".
He would not confirm rumours that aircraft passing the scene had deployed at least some of the oxygen masks in the cabin as a precaution.

Thank you for your link .

It is a much better report than the BBC one and as stated in this one , no emergency , just a precautionary measure .

Im surprised at the tame headline....they should have gone with "Helpless passengers narrowly escape a gruesome death in defective aircraft"

Of course a 737 can't dump fuel

Well unless the FO got out on the wing in mid flight.....

I see the BBC have changed the article to closer resemble reality.

PPRuNe works.

Starter for 10, when was the last time that the BBC actually employed a proper air correspondent, Reg Turnhill springs to mind. Rather than the current crop of non-experts....

No no,

Not yet, I still need to hear the passenger reports of how some thought they were going to die, the sheer terror of it all, how the pilot told them nothing for the first 2 seconds of the event, how the cabin crew ran around the cabin screaming, babies crying, soggy pay for sandwiches..........
