SAS Flight Diverts to Stavanger
On Feb 16, 2013, a Scandinavian Airlines System Boeing 737-883 was en route from Las Palmas to Bergen – Norway when the flight developed problems with the flaps.
Pilots diverted to Stavanger airport where SAS has mechanics. Ten minutes before landing, passengers were told to keep their heads down.
Pilots successfully made a fast landing at high speed with no flaps, and though none of the 108 passengers was injured, plenty of them were nervous after ten minutes with their heads down. Then the captain came out and explained what had happened.
Four buses took passengers to Bergen by bus, but some opted to stay in hotels and fly the rest of the way.
