British Airways flight experiences technical difficulties landing in Cape Town
A British Airways (BA) flight experienced technical difficulties with its landing gear on arrival at Cape Town International Airport only days after flights were grounded amid safety concerns.
On Saturday, BA6324 flight had trouble landing in Cape Town after experiencing “a landing gear warning indication”, said BA in a statement.
The plane was travelling from Gqeberha.
“We confirm that following a landing gear warning indication on BA6324 on final approach from Gqeberha [PLZ] to Cape Town International Airport [CPT], the pilot performed standard safety checks, and once the correct reading was achieved a normal landing was carried out,” the statement added.
The landing difficulties resulted in a 15-minute delay.
The latest incident comes only a month after a BA flight from East London to Johannesburg was forced to make an emergency landing.
