We often hear about forced landings when planes run into dangerous weather, mechanical issues or other dangerous reasons. But sometimes planes land for the oddest reasons ever. Here are some of the weirdest reasons why planes have had to land:
1. JetBlue Wasted
This is the most recent story from the list. A JetBlue plane was forced to make an emergency landing after a drunk woman allegedly fondled a male passenger's head, threw food and broke free from handcuffs during the flight.
This 30-year-old woman was charged with interfering with flight crew members and attendants after the plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Washington DC.
The woman is due to face court in Virginia this week.
2. Toilet Troubles
A flight took off from Oslo Gardermoen headed for Munich. However, the plane only got as far as the Swedish border before it had to turn back, circling four times over Hedmark to get rid of excess fuel and then landing.
The flight was aborted as a result of a problem with the toilets on board, and funnily enough, the flight had 85 plumbers aboard as passengers. This quickly made headlines for its ironic circumstances.
The airline CEO commented saying, "We would have liked to fix the restrooms, but unfortunately it had to be done from the outside and we didn’t risk sending a plumber to work at 10,000m,” he told Dagbladet. “There was a good atmosphere in the plane, what with the irony about the broken toilets.”
If I was the staff in this next one, I would have lost it!
