Emergency landing KLM on Aruba

KLMORANJESTAD – An aircraft of the Dutch airline KLM had to make an emergency landing last Saturday in Aruba.

On board there were more than 200 passengers. The Airbus was leaking kerosene in engine No. 1, causing acute fire hazard.

The problem was discovered around 150 kilometers before arriving in Aruba.

The plane landed safely, but left a trail of oil and kerosene behind on the runway.

The waiting passengers on Aruba, which would fly with the aircraft to Amsterdam had to wait a day. Yesterday, they left the island with the now repaired aircraft.
