On Tuesday morning, a mechanical problem almost caused the pilots to lose control of their Boeing 777 during an Air France flight from New York to Paris.
Sources said the plane was about to land at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris on Tuesday morning from Kennedy Airport on Monday when the near-disaster struck.
The plane reportedly suffered “instability of flight controls” and “flight path oscillations” as it was about to land.
With the incident, the jet aborted its landing and embarked on a “go around,” Pilots circle back to an airport for another landing attempt.
Sources said despite the incident, the flight arrived on time.
In a statement, Air France said the go-around was a “normal procedure” and that the flight crew “landed normally after a second approach.”
“Air France understands and regrets the discomfort felt by customers,” the statement said.
