(FeaturedNews.com) – On Monday, United Airlines Flight 2267 was forced to abruptly stop from performing its landing at Boston Logan International Airport, as the plane that had landed on the runway before had not yet moved out of the way.
The air traffic controller informed the pilot at 10:45 p.m. that he would need to cancel the landing. The flight was around 200 feet off the ground at the time of the request. FlightAware data has shown that the flight was traveling from Chicago O’Hare International Airport.
A spokesperson for the Federal Aviation Administration noted that due to the obstruction, the air traffic control had instructed Flight 2267 to cancel the landing and instead perform a go-around in order for the runway to clear. An investigation has been launched into the incident that took place on Sept. 11
In an interview with Boston 25, a FOX affiliate, one of the passengers disclosed that during the incident he was pushed back into his seat. As he noted, everyone gasped while the engines picked up and the airplane changed seats. He further added that they had seen the plane approach the tarmac and land before they were pushed back on their seats by the rapid change in direction. Once the plane was further up in the sky, the pilot spoke into the loudspeaker informing them that due to an obstruction in the runway, they would need to wait before they could perform a landing.
The air traffic controller also apologized to the pilot for the incident in the audio recording.
