[Video] Ryanair’s Boeing 737 no flap emergency landing in Warsaw

On Jan. 29, Ryanair Boeing 737-800 EI-EKW, flying as FR9524/RYR244L from Stansted to Lublin, performed an unusual no-flap, high speed emergency approach to Chopin Airport in Warsaw (where it was diverted in order to exploit the longer runway).

Flaps failures and consequent no-flap approaches result in high-speed landings due to the higher stall speeds.
