Wheel loss forces plane into emergency landing
A Ryanair flight was forced to make an emergency landing yesterday after losing one of its nose wheels.
The problem hit the Boeing 737 soon after it left London Stansted bound for Copenhagen at 8.07am.
It was diverted to East Midlands Airport where it landed safely.
Several flights were delayed at the Leicestershire airport as a result.
Yesterday afternoon a Ryanair spokesman said: “The aircraft landed safely, customers disembarked and will board a replacement aircraft shortly.”
The Air Accidents Investigation Branch deployed a team of investigators to the scene.
