A Singapore Airlines aircraft carrying 228 people made an emergency landing in the national capital on Wednesday after experiencing a glitch in the nose wheel, an airport official said. Coming from Singapore, the A380-800 plane made a hard landing and was later towed away to the parking bay, according to a passenger on board.
The airline issued a statement, saying that the aircraft experienced a hydraulic system issue prior to its arrival in Delhi. "As a result, the aircraft needed to be towed to the parking bay after landing. A normal disembarkation was subsequently carried out," it said, adding that none of the passengers or crew on board were in any danger.
