Ghanaians fighting in a plane cause an emergency landing
A United Airlines plane with 144 people aboard bound for Accra, Ghana, returned to Washington-Dulles International Airport for an emergency landing after a fight broke out between passengers just after midnight Sunday. The Washington Post, which first reported the incident, reported that the fight began not long after takeoff when a passenger lowered his seat and a passenger behind him objected. They was an argument, a smack to head, then a fistfight, forcing the pilot to return to Dulles. Hahahaha! If na Nigerians now, we for no hear word... lol Continue reading... As they turned back, the United pilots dumped much of its fuel into the Atlantic as a safety precaution to lighten its weight on landing. A 767 can take off with 16 ,700 gallons of fuel, and for the flight of more than ,000 miles to Accra, Ghana, it would have needed all of that. The full load of fuel weighs more than 57 tons, and although a 767 can get that weight airborne, it can't land with it. A spokesman at the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, Rob Yingling, according to Washington Post said members of the Dulles police force met the flight at the gate and officers determined that the incident didn't warrant pressing any charges.
