A Virgin Atlantic passenger plane safely carried out a "non-standard" landing at London's Gatwick airport on Monday after a landing gear problem, with television pictures showing the plane intact and stationary on the runway.
"Virgin Atlantic can confirm that flight VS43 has landed safely back at Gatwick," the company said in a statement. "Our priority now is to look after our passengers and crew."
Television pictures showed the aircraft made a slightly bumpy, but otherwise regular landing. Passengers could not yet be seen exiting the plane, which was shown surrounded by emergency service vehicles.
