Airport vehicle hits Ryanair aircraft
Passengers on a flight from Malta to Luton were delayed by more than five hours today when their Ryanair Boeing 737 aircraft was hit by a vehicle lifting a wheelchair. The incident happened at about 11 .10 a.m.
Although the damage did not appear to be serious, engineers declared the aircraft unserviceable and the passengers were disembarked.
Ryanair sent another aircraft to pick them up.
The stricken aircraft was kept in Malta for repairs.
A similar case happened at the end of last month, involving an Air Malta aircraft.
