The two pilots, the three flight attendants and the 96 passengers on board were unharmed and were evacuated via emergency slides.
A Boeing 717 of the airline Delta Airlines made an emergency landing this Wednesday in the United States, local media reported. Flight DL1092 had taken off in the morning from Atlanta, Georgia, and was scheduled to land at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport in North Carolina.
As the aircraft was preparing to touch down, a fault was detected that prevented the deployment of the nose landing gear. The crew informed the control tower and warned the passengers of a possible hard landing and asked them to adopt a safety posture, resting their heads and hands against the front seat. One of the travelers recorded the situation on board on video.
Finally, the plane managed to land successfully without nose gear. One of the passengers assured that, despite everything, it was a “smooth” and “no noise” maneuver. The two pilots, the three flight attendants and the 96 passengers were unharmed and were evacuated via the emergency slides.
