UA flight to Newark makes emergency landing

Published on : Monday, October 24, 2016

United AirlinesA United Airlines flight from Belfast to Newark was forced to make an emergency landing at Shannon Airport due to some mechanical issue. The UA76 flight left Belfast International Airport at 11:19 BST and was due to arrive in New York’s Newark Airport at 13:45 local time.

 
However, the Boeing 757-224 landed safely at the County Clare airport at 14:28 BST.

 

In February, a plane on the same route had to make an emergency landing in Manchester.
The reason given for that diversion was also a “mechanical issue”.

 
In the most recent incident, the plane had to burn off fuel before making a low approach to Shannon Airport for inspection.

 
It then gained altitude for a go-around before landing.

 
Shannon Airport said the plane had “declared an emergency”.
