Boeing 737 plane makes emergency landing minutes after takeoff with 50 passengers on board, latest safety error

A BOEING 737 plane with 50 passengers on board was forced into an emergency landing just minutes after takeoff.

The United Airlines plane lasted only a few minutes in the air before complaints about a wing irregularity were reported in Boeing’s latest safety blunder.

The Boeing plane made an emergency landing just minutes after takeoff in Japan.

The plane left Fukuoka airport in Japan Friday morning around 11:45 a.m. before quickly being forced to turn around, according to police.

No one was injured during this major ordeal.

Police are currently investigating the accident to determine the cause of the emergency landing.

The runway at Fukuoka Airport was temporarily closed for routine safety checks after the emergency landing.

It is now the fourth Boeing-related incident in just the last three days, after the Sun reported a burning plane skidding off the runway in Senegal.

A Boeing 737 was seen on fire as terrified passengers were forced to jump to the ground for safety reasons at Dakar airport.

The 73 passengers were evacuated and fifteen of them were injured, four of them seriously.

Hours earlier Thursday, another Boeing plane encountered a technical problem, raising safety concerns and causing new headaches for the aerospace giant.

A total of 190 people had to be evacuated after their Corendon Airlines flight suffered a flat tire while landing at Gazipasa Airport in Alanya, Turkey.

All of this comes just days after a Boeing cargo plane owned by the U.S. postal service FedEx crashed on its nose on Wednesday.

The 767 plane was traveling from Paris to Istanbul and sent sparks as it nosedived onto the runway.

Several other errors have already occurred this year when a Boeing 747 was filmed bouncing along the runway.

The Lufthansa Airlines plane was seen crashing into the ground twice at Los Angeles Airport (LAX) before the pilot gave up and aborted the hard landing.

Two days earlier, a wheel fell off a Boeing 737 full of passengers as smoke billowed from the commercial plane.

Dramatic footage showed the plane screeching along the runway before being forced to make an emergency landing shortly after takeoff.

These multiple errors come as the giant plane faces controversy over safety concerns.

Boeing has always claimed that its planes are safe to fly.

THE WHISTLEBLOWER SPEAKS

The failed landing is just the latest in a series of controversies surrounding Boeing as investigations continue into the company.

Courageous whistleblower Sam Salehpour has described how he saw workers jump on plane parts to force them onto “defective” planes.

He said Boeing bosses told him to “shut up” and threatened him after he consistently raised serious safety concerns about how the planes were assembled.

Salehpour participated in back-to-back explosive US Congressional hearings this week testifying against his employers.

The engineer worked at Boeing for a decade and says he tried to warn them of his concerns for much of that time.

At the congressional hearing, Salehpour said, “I’m not here today because I want to be here.

“I was ignored, told not to create delays, told, frankly, to shut up…

“My boss said to me, ‘I would have killed anyone who said what you said,’ in a meeting.”

His biggest problems were with the way some planes had been assembled over the past three years.

In one of his shocking claims, he said: “I literally saw people jumping on pieces of the plane to line them up.

“I repeatedly produced reports for my supervisor and Boeing management indicating that gaps on the 787 were not properly measured or shimmed in two major joints on the 787.”

Salehpour found that out of 29 planes, major deficiencies were reported but not addressed a staggering 98.7 percent of the time.

In 80 percent of cases, unfilled gaps ended up being filled with debris, he told Congress.

Another former Boeing employee turned whistleblower, John Barnett, 62, testified against the company just days before he died from a “self-inflicted” injury.

At the time of his death, he had provided evidence of alleged wrongdoing at Boeing to investigators working on a lawsuit against the company, according to the BBC.

In 2019, he told reporters he saw workers deliberately installing substandard parts on planes on the production line.

Barnett said defective parts were mishandled and sometimes lost or refitted on planes from the company’s scrapyard to meet production deadlines.

It also claimed to have discovered major problems in some aircraft oxygen systems, which could cause one in four masks to malfunction.

He also claims his complaints were ignored.
