Cleveland (WJW) — FOX 8I team Passenger planes began landing in Cleveland, but we obtained internal emails and air traffic control records to clarify what happened when they suddenly returned to the air.
It happened on Tuesday Hopkins Airport When Frontier 1042 flies from Orlando.
Passengers said the crew had announced that they could not land because there was an airport vehicle on the runway.
But air traffic records tell a different story.
Genherold told Team I she was in the flight.
She states: Then suddenly we came back. After that, I started to go around Cleveland. “
Records show that the Tower actually warned airport vehicles on the runway when the plane was approaching.
The tower said:
“24 right. There is another arrival … It will arrive on the ground in about 5 minutes … It will be finished.”
And the person in the car replied,
“It will end if necessary. Car 4.”
The recording then shows that the car has left the runway.
The driver reported:
“Car 4 on the ground is off Runway 24.”
The tower then cleared Flight 1042 and landed, which the pilot acknowledged.
He said. 24 right. “
However, records also reveal that the pilot decided to pull up the airport and go around again for another reason.
The pilot is wireless
“… we are moving around.”
“But oh, we weren’t stable.”
“I think a lot of passengers were a little confused because we weren’t getting off anymore,” said Jen Herold.
In the airport email, “CAR4 … was not near the active runway … after Flt. 1042 was given a” landing permit … “. “
In addition, the “go-around procedure” is considered a “general practice” when the flight crew is not fully prepared to land.
Flight 1042 went around the airport and the plane landed safely.
But notes and recordings answer questions about cars at the airport.
You may be wondering why the vehicle was on the runway. After all, it’s just part of normal airport operations. Workers were inspecting the runway. It is done multiple times a day.
All of this sheds new light on what happens during the landing that you may never think of. Genherold said,
“Everything you need to keep your crew and passengers safe. So everything went well after that.”
We also asked Frontier Airlines for comment many times.
The company sent us an email confirming our request, but by the end of Friday we had not received a statement.
