Recently, a video from an AirAisa flight went viral after encountering an technical engine issue one hour and a half on flight. Now, Thomas Cook plane was reported to do an emergency landing back in Manchester as a low oil alert was detected mid-air.
Aside from the low oil alert, as shown on the photos, the wing of the plane also got broken.
With 322 passengers on board, Thomas Cook’s spokesman shared to Mail Online that the broken wing has nothing to do with the main reason for the emergency landing, “Thomas Cook Airlines flight MT2652 to Holguin returned to Manchester as a precaution after a low oil indication, unrelated to the wing.”
He also shared that "Safety always comes first and the aircraft will undergo a full safety check before returning to service. We are sorry to our customers for the delay and will get them back on the way as soon as possible. The plane's wingtip is currently being repaired. In the interim the aircraft is safe and legal to fly in this condition.”
While the plane is under maintenance, passengers were accommodated in a hotel overnight.
