    "The right wheel broke when the plane landed," Bruun said. "The right engine caught fire but it was extinguished rapidly by the firemen."

    SAS plane accident


    A plane flying from Copenhagen to Palanga in Lithuania on Wednesday night was diverted to Vilnius after a cockpit warning light was illuminated. The plane's landing gear gave way during its emergency landing, in an incident remarkably similar to Sunday's accident in Ålborg, Denmark.

    "It was a similar accident to that in Ålborg, in which the landing gear gave way. I do not have any information about the exact order of events," said Bertil Tenert, information manager for SAS group.

    The accidents both involved Dash 8-Q400 turboprop planes. Other planes of the same model have been taken out of service following the accidents.
