757 Emergency At Local Air Show

Boeing 767 LOT Polish Airlines crash-landed at Warsaw Fryderyk Chopin Airport. No one was injured. On board were 220 passengers and 11 crew members. The machine, which flew to Warsaw from Newark in the U.S., she could not release the landing gear and landed "on the belly."

Eagle also good lands - as Boeing 767 pilot Cpt. Tadeusz Wrona commented on the slogan "Fly like an eagle, as the crow lands." He added: - There is great danger threatened us. We knew that we must land. With or without landing gear.

- It is not I landed, only I, together with a friend. While I was holding the reins, but he monitored, whether I'm doing it right - said Cpt. Wrona on TVN24.

Cpt. Wrona said that this situation would be much worse if it came out only a portion of the chassis.

As he said Cpt. Wrona in response to a question about the first words after landing, the word that everyone has been waiting for, he replied that these were the words of the officer deck - "deck clean." Then, once found themselves at the airport, the crew simply hugged.

Tadeusz Wrona said, replying to a question about the frequent comparison of its land to the "miracle on the Hudson River," that "probably would not so he could"
