Transatlantic jet circles Southampton after undercarriage problems
A TRANSATLANTIC jumbo jet bound from Heathrow to Philadelphia in the USA spend more than half an hour circling over Southampton after it had problems raising its undercarriage.
Flight US729 has been roaring low over the city at about 6000 ft this afternoon.
The National Air Traffic Service told the Daily Echo this was because the plane's wheels were “locked down” and it was decided to circle before gaining permission to fly back to Heathrow.
