Manchester United team escape air crash as they land in Germany

Premier League giants Manchester United experienced a scare during their flight to Germany for their Champions League match against Bayer Leverkusen, this according to several reports on Tuesday night.

United’s chartered flight headed to Cologne’s airport suffered a tough landing and aborted its landing approximately 400 meters from the ground to avoid another aircraft that was still on the runway.

According to reports, no one was injured though several players and team personnel.

It is understood a number of passengers expressed their concern and, while a stewardess initially said there had not been a problem, the captain later came onto the speakers to confirm he had been forced to abort the landing as there was another plane on the runway.
