Passenger plane crash-lands in Warsaw

Polish aircraft with more than 200 on board forced to improvise after the wheels fail to come down.

    A commercial airliner with 231 passengers on board has made an emergency landing in Warsaw, the Polish capital, with all its passengers unharmed.

    Captain Tadeusz Wronaof, flying Boeing 767 from the US east coast to the Polish capital, had to improvise when he landed at the Polish capital because the plane's wheels failed to come down.

    Bronislaw Komorowski, the Polish president, has praised the pilot along with the rest of his crew.
