A Singapore Airlines plane carrying 228 people last night was forced to make an emergency landing at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi after suffering a glitch with its nose wheel, an airport official said.
The aircraft - A380-800 from Singapore - suffered some problem with its nose wheel and was towed away to the terminal, according to a passenger onboard.
The official said a full emergency was declared for SG 406 Singapore-Delhi flight having 228 people on board and the plane landed safely.
According to the passenger, there was apparently "loss of steering capacity" for the plane, which also aborted landing once. The plane made a hard landing and stopped on the runway, he added.
