Forced landing in the Athens airport ends well
Posted by Greeka on 07 Apr 2008
A good ending had the adventure of 123 passengers and the crew of the Boing 731, which belonged to Easy Jet air company.
The airplane was flying from Athens to London, Gatwick Airport. A while after the plane took off from El. Venizelos at 11:05 and while it was over Karystos, Evia Island, the pilot discovered an engine problem. He asked for a forced landing and after doing some circles over the sea emptying the fuels, it landed safely at 11:39.
The Greek airport in the meanwhile had taken all the necessary measures in case of the forced landing.
