A FedEx cargo plane had a scary accident at Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport. It happened when the plane was about to land because its landing gear didn’t work. But amazingly, all three people on the plane were okay.
The Chattanooga Fire Department got calls about the problem when the plane was taking off. Emergency teams rushed to the airport as the plane circled around, trying to land without its landing gear. When it finally touched down, it slid off the runway. There was some smoke, but luckily, there was no fire. The fire department praised the pilot, airport workers, and all the people who helped out. They said everyone did a great job handling the dangerous situation. FedEx confirmed the incident and said that everyone on board was safe. They told reporters to ask the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) for more information. The NTSB is looking into what caused the landing gear to fail.
Because of the accident, the main runway at Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport is closed for now. Some flights might be delayed or changed because of this. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) also promised to investigate to make sure future flights are safe.
This accident shows how important skilled pilots, fast-thinking airport workers, and organized emergency teams are in preventing disasters in aviation. Thankfully, in this case, they worked together and kept everyone on the FedEx plane safe.
