by News Editor
ABC News / AP – A Greek plane landed safely in Tel Aviv without anyone being hurt on Thursday after issuing a rare mayday call on its approach to Israel’s Ben Gurion international airport.
The plane had apparently suffered a hydraulic problem around noon and was forced to take measures for an emergency landing, said airport spokesman Ofer Lefler. All 170 people on board, passengers and crew, were safe and well, said police spokesmen Micky Rosenfeld.
