More than a hundred ambulances were dispatched to Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport on Monday after a plane carrying 152 passengers on board announced an emergency landing. A level 3 Emergency Condition has been announced by the airport.

At least one tire of the Electra Air 737 reportedly exploded when the aircraft took off from Cologne, Germany, i24News reported on Monday.

The aircraft is now circling over the Mediterranean aiming to shed fuel and reduce its weight before landing.

The flight is scheduled to land at Ben Gurion Airport in about 30 minutes, at 4:05 p.m. local time.

A live video from the scene has emerged online.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
