Plane descends too low on approach to Birmingham Airport
21 February 2006

Inquiries have started after a Mahan Air Airbus A.310 landing at Birmingham International Airport came in too low. The airplane is reported to have descended to 600ft (182m) six miles from the airport. At that point it should have been at 1,800ft (550m). Reports say the pilot was alerted and told to climb, which he did before making a second attempt at landing.
