Jet makes emergency foam landing at German airportOn September 14th, 2009, a passenger jet made an emergency landing in Stuttgart, Germany.  The plane landed on a protective layer of emergency foam after having several problems with its landing gear.  The passenger jet was a Contact Air.  A stewardess was taken to a local hospital for observation, and only one other passenger was injured.  All of the passengers were able to leave out of the emergency slides successfully and safely.   The plane was built in November of 1995, and had a full inspection on August 5th.  The pilot was also very experienced, and had over 17,000 hours of flying under his belt.  Nothing could have been done differently to prevent this obstacle.  The plane circled around several times and finally went in and did an emergency landing.  The Contact Air aircraft was flying from Berlin’s Tegel Airport, and was carrying 5 crew members and 73 passengers.  The landing gear never came down correctly, and when they landed on the protective foam layer, the landing gear was only partly extended.
