Plane makes emergency landing in Poland; all passengers safe

A Boeing 767 plane made a dramatic emergency landing at Warsaw, Poland's Frederic Chopin International airport after problems with its landing gear, an airport spokeswoman said Tuesday.

All the passengers on the flight, from New Jersey's Newark airport to Warsaw, are safe and uninjured, she told CNN.

The LOT Polish Airlines flight, which had been due to land at 1:35 local time, circled above the airport for an hour before coming down in a belly landing at 2:40, she said.

There were 230 people aboard the flight, Poland's TVN broadcaster said.

      That's odd, what it showed me was "planes are safer than most people think they are."

    People should trust Jesus Christ for their salvation[Lord and Savior] as they do with their lives boarding any operator of airplane, bus, train, ship,etc.

      Why stop there? After all, more people die in ordinary passenger automobiles every year than any of the other forms of transportation. Why not pause to trust in Jesus before they get in a regular car?

      P.S. Neither agreeing nor disagreeing, just honestly curious.

    she is a trouble maker, sour about not winning and being molded last election cycle to what the RNC wants her to be. She needs to sit down and be quite. I met her in person at a hotel with her bratty spoiled kids during the last election.
