A Boeing airliner operated by All Nippon Airways (ANA) has made a spectacular emergency landing in Japan overnight. The jet sent out a stream of sparks before screeching to a stop after it was forced to turn back minutes after take-off due to mechanical problems. None of the 141 passengers and eight crew members were injured in the incident involving the Boeing-767 in Fukuoka on the southwestern island of Kyushu, the Japanese airline said. The plane departed for Okinawa but was forced to turn back after a warning message that the landing gear was not properly stored, said an ANA spokesman. Once the plane landed, a thick trail of golden sparks flew out of its main landing gear.(April 17 2008)
