Pilot Oliver A, 39 years, and their copilot Maxi J., 24 years, managed to recover the airplane, an Airbus A-320, not without before getting to touch the ground with one of their wings, which was damaged, but that it did not avoid that the airplane retook flight.
One inquired in addition that both pilots managed to land in the airport in a second attempt.
