Manchester Airport runway closed after plane’s wheel breaks on landing
Manchester Airport has closed one of its runways after a plane’s wheel broke on landing.
Passengers on the flight from Heathrow reported hearing a crack followed by a loud shuddering noise after the plane landed.
They had to wait for about 45 minutes before they were evacuated off the British Airways plane without their luggage and the plane was then moved to the taxiway, while emergency services were called to the scene.
The airport’s Runway 1 was closed for hours while investigations took place, but there was no disruption to flights, with traffic diverted to Runway 2.
