10-sf-flybe-first-aircraftA passenger plane of Flybe was compelled to make an emergency landing in Glasgow after the pilot had shut down the main engine of the aircraft as a ‘safety precaution’.


The flight from Glasgow to Birmingham was interrupted mid-air following a technical fault that caused its pilot to turn back to the destination from where it had departed.


However, Flybe denied that there had been an engine failure.


But then, a spokeswoman did respond to the media enquiries for the official comment of the airliner regarding the technical error. She said that Flybe confirms that the flight BE783 had returned to Glasgow airport after a technical fault has forced the pilot to shut down the engine number one.


She mentioned that the pilot had resorted to such a mode of action as precautionary measure.


The pilot had followed all the necessary procedures. The aircraft then landed safely without any incidents. The airlines company said that the Bombardier Q400 was capable of flying safely even in the absence of one of its engines.


A spokesperson, though, said that this is a standard procedure and that the aircraft had been met by the airport’s emergency service vehicles.


When the aircraft arrived on stand, all the 46 passengers were able to disembark safely. The incident occurred on the same day when Storm Doris caused widespread travel chaos all across UK and several flights had been cancelled from UK airports.
