JOHANNESBURG - Comair says the British Airways plane that is stranded at OR Tambo International Airport experienced an 'unusual vibration' which was followed by the collapse of the left landing gear.

Earlier today, there were slight delays at the airport following the incident with the plane from Port Elizabeth.

No one was injured.

One passenger who was on board the flight applauded the manner in which the pilot handled the situation.

"As we touched down [we heard] a massive bang. You could feel the plane lift to the left and our lady pilot kept us to the straight and narrow and pretty much safely to a stop.

Another says, "I think the pilots did fantastically well to keep the plane the way that they did; but the plane did come to a standstill, as abruptly as possible."
