Pressure Drop Downs Plane

Norwegian passengers on a chartered aircraft sat startled as oxygen masks were released as the plane was forced into a controlled emergency landing at Copenhagen’s Kastrup airport.

The reason given for the landing was a drop in cabin pressure. A spokesman for airline Sterling told media “The drop was noted shortly after the plane took off from Oslo en route to Alicante”.

The pilot quickly dropped the plane to a lower altitude while oxygen masks were released for all passengers. The situation "was under control at all times," the spokesman said.

Calm was maintained at all times and credit was payed to all passengers during the dramatic incident.
