Jet2 flight from Crete makes ‘full speed’ emergency landing at Manchester Airport plane — A Boeing 737-800 had to make a ‘full speed’ emergency landing at Manchester Airport due to malfunctioning wing flaps.

Flight LS444 from Heraklion to Leeds-Bradford returning passengers from their holidays, circled for over an hour above Leeds-Bradford before it was directed to Manchester, 54 miles away, where there is a longer runway.

The aircraft landed safely at a higher than normal speed and stopped on the runway. Emergency services sprayed the brakes to cool them down.

The aircraft returned to service about 15.5 hours after landing.
