Emergency Landing Lufthansa Airbus A340-300 no flaps/high speed landing at Frankfurt Airport – On the 28th of March, the Lufthansa Flight LH542 Frankfurt to Bogota operated by an Airbus A340-300 with the registration D-AIGN developed a serious problem with its flaps shortly after departure. After completing a few holds over the Dutch coast to lower the landing weight, the A340 returned back to Frankfurt and landed safely without flaps at around 15:50 UTC. To be honest, I firstly didn’t even realize that I just filmed an emergency landing as everything looked quite usual, apart from a few fire services driving by and a rather long holding queue, but I thought it might be normal for an airport in this size. After no plane was lining up, I checked flight radar and Twitter if something happened and noticed that I just caught an emergency landing. ReverseThrustAviation
