The German national team is “OK” after its jet was forced to make an emergency landing in Edinburgh while returning from Iceland.
The KlasJet flight left Reykjavik at 2 a.m., following Germany’s 4-0 triumph against Iceland, and was en route to Frankfurt when it encountered technical difficulties three miles west of Arbroath.
The Boeing 737-500 reported an emergency and made a sudden turn between Dundee and Arbroath before landing in the Scottish capital at 4 a.m., lasting 20 minutes.
The squad tweeted in German, “First and foremost, safety.” As a precaution, make a safe layover in Edinburgh. Individual onward and return journeys are scheduled from there.”
