Caros Amigos,

 

Já estava com saudades deste "nosso" fórum :rofl:

 

Um Embraer 145 da Continental Express aterrou de emergência em Houston (Texas - EUA).

 

O problema ocorreu na roda esquerda da aeronave e esta esteve 1h45m a queimar combustível antes da aterragem de emergência. Que eternidade aquele minutos para os passageiros...

 

Plane Lands Safely in Houston After Tire Blow-Out

 

Tuesday, May 02, 2006

 

 

HOUSTON — A Continental Express plane made an uneventful emergency landing Tuesday after blowing a tire upon takeoff at Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport.

 

The twin-engine plane, bound for Minneapolis, reported the problem at 4:25 p.m. CDT, circled the airport to burn fuel and landed safely at 6:22 CDT.

 

Emergency crews rushed to the plane, which landed with no visible sparks.

 

Aerial video of the Embraer 145 plane showed the left tires on the landing gear nearly stripped of rubber.

 

The plane, which was en route to Minneapolis, tried to land once, but was waved off. It was ordered to do a second flyby of the airport so officials could assess the damage and allow the plane to burn fuel before it could land, said Continental Express spokeswoman Kristy Nicholas.

 

Continental spokeswoman Sarah Anthony said the plane carried 45 passengers and a crew of three.

 

"I want to commend the crew of flight 3161 for handling this difficult situation with the utmost in professionalism and ensuring the passengers safety," said ExpressJet President and CEO Jim Ream. ExpressJet Airlines Inc. operated the flight.

Um abraço
