Plane Makes Emergency Landing At Norwich Airport

10 March 2014, 14:56

A plane headed for Aberdeen has been forced to make an emergency landing at Norwich Airport after a fault was found.

The Saab 2000 plane was carrying 48 passengers and three crew when a warning in the cockpit suggested there might be something wrong with one of the hydraulic systems.

The plane landed safely at Norwich airport at 7.30 this morning and the passengers were sent a replacement plane to take them to Aberdeen while the Saab was given a full inspection.

Eastern Airways have apologised for the inconvenience but say the safety of passengers and crew is paramount.
