Video - Fokker 100 Emergency Landing in Germany

Today a Fokker 100 (D-AFKE) with 73 passengers and 5 crew on board, made an emergency landing at Stuttgart (Germany).
The Contact Air (Lufthansa Regional) flight 288 from Berlin Tegel to Stuttgart reported landing gear problems during approach.
After several unsuccessfull attempts to unlock the gear, the pilot decided to carry out the emergency landing. The aircraft landed on a foam carpet. The Fokker 100 had just been acquired by Contact Air, entering service on 1 September 2009.
Nobody was seriously injured.
