Emergency Landing At East Midlands...

Tue Jun 10, 2003 7:36 pm

Just heard a (brief) radio report off BBC Radio News saying a bmi aircraft with 50 pax has made an emergency landing at EMA with engine troubles. It says the aircraft was travelling Leeds Bradford to Paris.
Thats all it said...

This BBC story has confirmed it as an "Embraer aircraft, a twin engine turbo-prop," and that it was carrying 48 passengers and 4 crew to Paris Charles de Gaulle.
