Thomas Cook flight TCX2534 had to return and make an emergency landing in Manchester, England, on October 13.
The Boeing 767, carrying 278 passengers, took off from Manchester Airport at around 7:15 a.m. and was on its way to Dalaman, Turkey, when the crew declared emergency and decided to return.
According to a Thomas Cook spokesperson, the decision for emergency landing was made as a precaution due to an unexpected hydraulic fault in the aircraft.
The plane landed uneventfully after circling over Peak District National Park to shed off extra fuel. No one was hurt.
The airline said, “We’d like to apologise to our customers for the delay to their flight today. Returning the aircraft to Manchester allowed our engineers to inspect the aircraft quickly and we’ve now been able to ensure our customers can start their holiday as soon as possible on a replacement aircraft.”
