A Ryanair plane is under investigation by British authorities after it “sinks” during a flight in December last year. The case concerns a Boeing 737 Max 200, a high-density version of the 737 Max 8, which landed at London Stansted Airport from Klagenfurt in Austria on 4 December 2023.

Due to the destabilizing approach, the crew ended up diving, but they let the plane sink too much, with the rate of descent reaching 8,832 feet (about 2,692 meters) per minute according to data from FlightRadar24, and confirmed by the AAIB, a British body that investigates aviation accidents and incidents.

This body told the portal: Any News What “We cannot provide any details at this time because this serious incident is still under investigation, but we can announce that the plane landed safely and no one was injured. The investigation is nearing completion and is scheduled to be published sometime in the fall.

The condition was classified as a bust level, which in aviation definition is an event in which the aircraft is 300 feet (about 91 meters) above or below the altitude issued or permitted by air traffic control.

In an official memo, Ryanair said the issue “was a destabilizing approach” and that the crew scrambled and landed safely on the second landing attempt. The airline itself took the case to the AAIB. But Ryanair did not say why the plane, registered EI-HET, did not fly for two days after this incident.
