The Daily Telegraph said:
accident investigations into hazardous approaches to airports.

The airline has been investigated for three serious incidents in less than a year, which involved aircraft approaching an airport either too fast or at the wrong height.

In each case the pilots were forced to abort landing.

In the latest to emerge, a Ryanair jet came within 425ft of the ground as it passed over the suburbs of Cork, triggering two alarms in the cockpit and dozens of complaints from concerned residents.

Following the latest report, from the Irish Air Accident Investigation Unit, the Ryanair chief executive Michael O’Leary has issued a memo to all pilots warning them they will face demotion the first time they make a dangerous approach and dismissal should they make a second.
