MD-83 damaged in emergency landing at Istanbul
11 October 2007

An Egyptian AMC Aviation MD-83 (reportedly SU-BOY) carrying 163 people to Warsaw (WAW) caught fire after making an emergency landing at Istanbul. Flight AMV 4270 from Hurghada (HRG) was forced to land in Istanbul (IST) due to a technical problem. Apparently the crew encountered problems selecting the undercarriage down before landing. One or more undercarriage legs are understood to have collapsed on landing, causing a (small) fire which was quickly contained. One passenger was slightly injured. (AP)
