Hapag Lloyd Airbus A310-304 plane crash
Shortly after the aircraft departed Chania, Greece, for a passenger flight to Hanover, Germany, the flight crew realized that the landing gear could not be retracted. The decision was made to continue the flight to Hanover at a lower altitude and airspeed with the landing gear extended. As the aircraft neared the mid-point of its journey, the crew realized that the remaining fuel would be insufficient to continue the flight to Hanover, so a landing was planning at Vienna, Austria.
As the aircraft descended through 10,000 feet, the left engine failed due to fuel exhaustion. By utilizing crossfeed fuel pumps, the crew was able to keep the right engine running, but was unable to restart the left. As the aircraft turned a six-mile final, the right engine also failed due to fuel exhaustion. The plane touched down 600 feet short of runway 34, collapsing the main landing gear, and seriously damaging the left wing and engine. None of the 150 people onboard received serious injuries.
