Here are the week’s best pieces from WOW!
A Boeing 767 flying from New Jersey to Poland with 230 people onboard made an emergency crash landing at Warsaw’s airport on Tuesday after an apparent problem with the aircraft’s landing gear.
Leszek Chorzewski, a spokesman for LOT, the Polish airline that operated the flight, said none of the passengers were injured. The plane landed on its belly without its wheels.
Video footage showed the plane touching down without landing gear in place. Emergency responders then extinguished a small fire, TVN24 reports.
The plane, which dumped fuel before making an emergency landing, circled over Warsaw’s Chopin Airport for more than an hour while operators attempted to get its landing gear to function.
The airport has been closed until 8 a.m. Wednesday.
Poland’s President Bronislaw Komorowski congratulated and thanked the pilot, Capt. Tadeusz Wrona, and the rest of the crew for their successful landing.
