“The pilot already fought with the control during landing. I do not know if it was too fast or too slow, I can not say without the knowledge of its speed and height. I fly often, but this was the first time I thought the front of the chassis had to be broken.” said Craig, the passenger.

“The airplane was landing during a strong wind. It landed normally and safely. The front wheel was not endangered, this explanation is very misleading and hypersensitive.” said Rayanair.
