Cargo plane narrowly avoids major disaster in Turkey

Turkey's minister confirms: Crew safely evacuated FedEx plane after landing scare

A Boeing 767 cargo plane has narrowly avoided a crash landing after its front landing gear failed.

The plane, belonging to the American postal company Fedex was on a flight from Paris to Istanbul.

It landed only at the second attempt and its nose ‘pecked’ into the runway.

No one was injured and the crew safely evacuated the aircraft, said Abdulkadir Uraloglu, Turkey’s transportation and infrastructure minister.

The runway where the plane landed was closed off while the aircraft was being removed, he said.
