No one was hurt, said officials, even though a FedEx jet went off the runway during a crash landing at a Tennessee airport when its landing gear would not deploy. The FedEx Boeing 757 was reported to have came across a landing gear breakdown shortly after takeoff late on Wednesday, causing public safety authorities to rush to the Chattanooga Regional Airport, the Chattanooga Fire Department tweeted.
Due to fire officials, the aircraft, which had three crew members on board, circled before making its final drop and coming to rest outside the runway in a safe area.
Officials claim that no injuries were sustained despite the fact that a FedEx jet’s landing gear did not retract during a crash landing at a Tennessee airfield. According to reports, the FedEx Boeing 757 experienced a landing gear issue shortly after departure late on Wednesday. As a result, emergency personnel flocked to the Chattanooga Regional Airport, the Chattanooga Fire Department tweeted.
The aircraft, which had three crew members on board, circled before making its final descent and came to rest beyond the runway in a secure location, according to fire officials.
The fire department stated, “Great work by the pilot and airport staff, as well as all responding agencies for their coordinated efforts.” A FedEx employee told media outlets that a problem happened shortly after takeoff on the trip from Chattanooga to Memphis.
The “gear up landing” at the airport is being investigated into, reportedly to the National Transportation Safety Board. Due to the crash landing, the Chattanooga Airport closed its main runway and warned that some flight schedules would be affected, according to news sources.
