Ryanair Flight Makes Emergency Landing After Losing Nose Wheel

Ryanair Plane After Emergency Landing

A Ryanair flight had to divert to East Midlands Airport to make an emergency landing after one of the nose wheels fell off during take-off from Stansted.

The flight was on its way to Copenhagen, but after losing one of its wheels the pilot circled round Ipswich for 15 minutes before landing safely at East Midlands Airport. No passengers were harmed, and they will all be accommodated on a later flight.

Flights into East Midlands Airport were briefly suspended while fire crews inspected the plane for safety. The Air Accident Investigation Branch have sent a team of inspectors to the airport to try to establish why the wheel fell off.

According to Ryanair: ‘This flight from Stansted to Copenhagen diverted to East Midlands because of the loss of one (of its two) nose wheels after take-off.

‘The aircraft landed safely in East Midlands, customers disembarked and will board a replacement aircraft shortly.’

Big thanks for the £304.70 transferred to my bank account today. My claim related to a three-leg flight from Norwich UK to Phoenix USA via Schiphol. The CAA suggested I had a good case but could do nothing because the delay occurred within Dutch jurisdiction. I twice did battle with KLM/Delta myself but they would not budge. Another claims firm tried but threw in the towel. So congratulations to Claim4Flights for taking it on and winning – and for getting the money transferred into my bank account within two days of notification. Very impressed!
