• Mc Donnell Douglas Wing Contact With Runway

  • On 21 October 2004 the DC-9-83 was scheduled on a charter flight from Zurich (Switzerland) to Pristina (Kosovo). The first approach was performed on runway 35 at Pristina. A go around was performed under demanding weather conditions because the aircraft could not be stabilized in short final. On this occasion the left wing made contact with the runway surface, whereby parts of the wing were damaged. There were no injuries to persons. After a second approach from the opposite direction the landing on runway 17 was uneventful.
