air malta plane makes emergency landing at glasgow airport


An Air Malta plane with 143 people on board had to circle over glasgow airport for a full 3 hours before making an emergency landing today, because of a suspected burst tyre. Full-scale emergency procedures were in place, with extra fire and ambulance crews drafted in to Glasgow airport in case of an emergency.

The Air Malta crew followed standard procedure after reporting a suspected problem shortly after flight KM107 took off at 19:30. An Air Malta spokesman said: 'It's not hugely common, but there was still a good tyre on the main landing gear and the pilot was able to land safely according to the safety procedure. The crew are well trained for such incidents and we are always pleased that they carry out their duties accordingly.'

A passenger, once safely on the ground at glasgow airport, said that all of the passengers gave the crew a round of applause when the plane finally landed safely.
