    Text book emergency landing. I bet the passengers were a bit apprehensive though.

    That is going to leave one big repair bill for the giant gouge it must leave behind.

    As the cocky announcement says "Another Ryanair Flight on time", I totally agree there ryanair flights paying for the wheels to land it would not surprise me But yes that was a very clever pilot and thank god nobody was hurt as well.
