12 September:
SAS plane accident

A plane flying from Copenhagen to Palanga in Lithuania on Wednesday night was diverted to Vilnius after a coughpit 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.
