767 Belly-Lands In Warsaw The crew of a 767 out of Newark made a successful gear-up emergency landing in Warsaw, Poland, on Tuesday, with sparks flying as the airplane skidded to a halt on the runway. The crew circled the airport for more than an hour, then landed with minimal fuel on a foamed runway, fire trucks standing by. The flight, with 220 passengers and 11 crew on board, was operated by LOT Polish Airlines. The airline said the jet's hydraulic system failed and the backup system worked only for the flaps, not the gear.
A Boeing 767 from Newark, New Jersey, carrying 230 passengers made an emergency landing in Warsaw after its landing gear failed to open. Leszek Chorzewski, the spokesman for LOT, the Polish airline that operated the flight, said none of the passengers was injured. The plane landed on its belly without its wheels. Passengers could be seen fleeing the plane. The airport has been closed until 8 a.m. on Wednesday.
