Published on February 3, 2020 by

An Air Canada Boeing 767 is being escorted by an F-18 fighter jet from the Spanish Air Force as it circles Madrid ahead of an emergency landing after part of its landing gear fell off and entered its engines.

According to Spain’s main pilot union, SEPLA, the aircraft lost pieces of its landing gear on takeoff from Madrid’s Barajas airport. The aircraft is now forced to circle the airport for some time to burn fuel in order to reach the maximum allowed weight to make a safe landing.
