Wizz Air Flight 3141, bound for Rome’s Ciampino Airport, dirverted to da Vinci because it has longer runways.
‘Airport police official Antonio del Greco said the plane was flying from Bucharest, Romania, to Rome’s Ciampino airport when the pilot reported the problem and asked to land instead at da Vinci because it has longer runways. Del Greco says the landing was “carried out expertly.” After landing, the plane tilted to one side, leaning on its left engine.’
There were 3 reported minor injuries.
