A cargo plane has made an emergency landing at Birmingham International Airport after a problem with its undercarriage.

The Boeing 737-300 crash landed on the main runway and collapsed on to its side.

Nobody was hurt, although its caused a lot of disruption:

This investigation will take some time 😕 ...
But as allredy sayed metal fatigue seems to be the most accurated theory.
