Czech Airlines Emergency Landing In Skopje, MKD

Sat Feb 11, 2012 1:48 pm

Czech Airlines flight from PRG to SKP had an emergency landing this morning in SKP. Per this website, http://bit.ly/yeMk8K (translated in English), the plane was circling around the airport for some 40 minutes before deciding to go for emergency landing. According to the captain, they had some problems with the brakes on one of the wings.
It's important to note that our Foreign Minister was on that flight, accompanied by Richard Howitt, Rapporteur for Macedonia in EU.
He twitted regarding his experience on his twitter profile: https://twitter.com/#!/richardhowitt

SKP has already extended its runway to 8038ft so CSA pilot used the entire runway to stop. As per passengers, crew has informed them about the situation and started to proceed with preparing for emergency landing. 40 minutes over SKP and the trip was happily over for everyone. As per news here in Macedonia, SKP airport ground operations did their job with necessities of such occasion.

Thanks to CSA crew and SKP airport for great professionalism and perfectly done job.

Quoting LazialeMKD (Thread starter):
Richard Howitt, Rapporteur for Macedonia in EU.

You would expect someone at that position to be able to tell "pray, pray, pray" from "Brace, Brace, Brace!"

waiting to see what really happened.
