UNB, Chattogram :

A Biman Bangladesh Airlines flight carrying 42 passengers made an emergency landing in Chattagram on Wednesday night.

It safely made the landing at Chattogram’s Shahamanat Airport at around 9.40 pm, said civil aviation sources.

They also said there was a problem with the landing gear of the aircraft, and that meant airport authorities had to take some special precautions to prepare the landing strip for a safe landing. During this intervening period, the plane was forced to circle overhead for some time.

The pilots also took one attempt to size up the landing they would have to execute. After receiving the signal from the control room, they went ahead and landed the plane relatively safely in the end.

Omar Faruq, assistant manager of Biman Bangladesh, said that there was a problem in the landing gear of the aircraft and that's why it made an emergency landing. However, the first landing attempt was not successful.

He added that there were some 42 passengers on the flight. It had left Dhaka at 8.45 pm for Chattagram airport.
