SCHIPHOL - A Boeing 747-400F made an emergency landing at Schiphol Airport on Thursday morning. As far as is known, there was a technical defect. Emergency services at the airport rushed out en masse.

The incident involved a 33-year-old Boeing 747, registration G-ONEE, of the relatively new British cargo airline One Air. The cargo plane departed London Heathrow for Hong Kong a little before 9 a.m. Around 9:20 a.m., the plane's crew sounded the alarm and 7700 squawked. At that time, the Jumbo was at 25,000 feet over the English Channel, near the Belgian coast. Thereupon the plane turned around and flew back toward England. There it flew for several minutes over the Norwich area, northeast of London, after which 

the machine still crossed the North Sea. Off the Dutch coast the aircraft circled for some time, after which it finally made its way to Schiphol Airport.


Meanwhile, the emergency services there responded in large numbers. A so-called "Grip 1" was issued, which meant that the emergency services worked closely together. The 747 finally landed just before 10:15 a.m. on Kaagbaan and came to a halt at the end of that runway, where emergency services were waiting. It is not yet clear exactly what was going on with the Jumbo. The situation is under further investigation.
