Tricky flight, safe landing

A passenger plane managed to land safely at an airport in southeast China’s Xiamen city yesterday afternoon after a undercarriage broke down. The Boeing 757, belonging to Kazakhstan’s Air Astana, successfully landed at 2:20pm at Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport, according to the airport. Earlier the plane, with four crew members aboard, had hovered for around three hours in the sky to eject extra fuel after it reported a landing gear failure in a test flight after repairs in the city. Nearly half the flights at the Xiamen airport were delayed by the incident. — IC
