emergency-landing-300x225New York bound Delta Airlines flight from Madrid was forced to return back to Madrid after a major hydraulics problem caused a hole in the wing of the Boeing 767-300ER aircraft.

The flight soon after the take off experienced this hydraulics issue. Amused and somewhat startled, the passengers onboard started taking pictures of the damaged wing. There were 200 passengers and 11 crew members onboard of the Delta flight 415.

According to Delta spokesman Morgan Durrant the tires on the main landing gear of the New York-bound plane deflated as it landed but the plane landed safely with no injuries.

Buses were dispatched to the plane to take the 200 passengers and 11 crew members to a terminal. The technical team at the Madrid airport was investigating on the hydraulics issue and the Delta spokesperson said he cannot comment on the technical glitch immediately.
