Emergency services on standby as Knock/Liverpool flight lands safely

A RYANAIR flight carrying 156 passengers from Ireland West Airport Knock to Liverpool landed safely despite a suspected technical problem involving a faulty plane flap.

Emergency services at John  Lennon Airport were put on standby yesterday afternoon after the alarm was raised by the crew of the Boeing 737-800.

However, Ryanair flight FR6674 touched down without any problems at 1.20 p.m. as scheduled. 

An airline spokesman explained: "The crew noticed a possible flap setting issue 12 miles out from Liverpool Airport.

"The captain entered a holding pattern, reset the flaps and proceeded to land normally without further incident."

The aircraft involved was returned to service after being inspected by Ryanair engineers.
