KLM flight from Manchester declared “Mayday Mayday Mayday” on approach to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.

On March 15th, 2024, KLM flight KL1074 departed Manchester, UK by 11:05 GMT to Amsterdam.

The flight was performed by a Boeing 737-900 (registration PH-BXS) which is 22 years old.

The aircraft descended from cruising altitude of 31,000 ft when the pilots noticed a flap issue.

The crew declared an emergency (Mayday Mayday Mayday) and informed traffic control about a flap overspeed on short final.

The flaps were stuck at 25° and the fuel was running low making the situation more stressful.

Pilots informed ATC about just 30 minutes of fuel remaining and were worrying about runway 22 may be too short.

The flight was cleared to land on runway 27 where it landed safely on second attempt after performing a go around.

The fire brigade was on alert and met the aircraft which taxied to the gate without further incident.
