LONDON - A Virgin Atlantic passenger plane will carry out a "non-standard landing" at London's Gatwick airport on Monday after a landing gear fault forced the US-bound plane to turn around, the airline said in a statement.



"Flight VS43 ... (has) returned to London Gatwick due to a technical issue with one of the landing gears," Virgin Atlantic said in a statement. "The aircraft is preparing to implement a non-standard landing procedure at Gatwick airport".



Flight tracking site flightradar24.com said the aircraft was a Boeing 747. Gatwick airport said emergency services were on standby.
