Basketball team Zalgiris Kaunas, of Lithuanian origin, qualified last Friday to the quarterfinals of the Euroleague after winning Real Madrid. After finishing the game, the team climbed in a Boeing 737 from the Lithuanian company Klasjet to return to your country. During the takeoff the plane suffered a problem in the information system that forced an emergency landing in Madrid.
Some of the people on board described the situation saying: "It was an hour of terror and panic". The team's coach, Sarunas Jasikevicius, told the Lithuanian media: "EThe team is happy to have relived. It seems fun now, although it was not "
The plane stopped during the ascent at about 5,000 feet because the information system of the device stopped working. This prevented the pilot to know at what speed they were traveling so he decided to make a emergency landing at the Madrid-Bajaras Adolfo Suárez Airport. The air traffic controllers had to clear the air traffic around the plane to allow the maneuver. He tried to make landfall twice but adverse weather conditions prevented him from doing so. Finally He went to the Getafe military base where he landed 45 minutes after takeoff, as he has reported 'five days'.
In contrast to the messages published by the players, the company through a statement has shown that none of the passengers was in danger.
