DELTA 747 FORCED INTO EMERGENCY LANDING

A Delta Air Lines Boeing 747 flying to Detroit made an emergency landing in Manila Sunday due to mid air technical problems encountered by the aircraft, forcing it to return to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). Delta Air Lines Flight DL630 was on its way to Nagoya, Japan, but landed back on NAIA’s Runaway 0624 nearly an hour after it took off from Manila at 0640. Carrying more than 300 passengers and crew, the aircraft was flying over Philippine airspace when technical problems developed in the plane. Shortly before 0730 the Manila Control Tower received a distress call radio message from the pilot of the aircraft, requesting emergency status and asked for permission to land at NAIA. The request to land was immediately granted with the airport’s medical and Fire and Rescue teams dispatched alongside the runway to wait for the flight’s arrival.

Passengers were deplaned safely and accommodated on the next flight. No one was hurt.
