A Ryanair 737 plane attempting to land in Faro, Portugal pulled up and aborted the landing due to a problem with the airliner’s flaps.
Flight 7482 was coming in from Memmingen, Germany on August 2nd when the incident occurred. The aborted landing was indeed at the last second as the 737-800 was 400 feet from touchdown.
Pilots landed the plane safely the next time around at a higher than normal rate of speed.
There were no injuries.
