An LGW Luftfahrtgesellschaft Walter de Havilland Dash 8-400 on behalf of Eurowings, registration D-ABQA performing flight EW-9900 from Dusseldorf (Germany) to Zagreb (Croatia) with 56 people on board, was on final approach to Zagreb’s runway 05 when the crew went around due to an unsafe gear indication. After working the checklists the crew declared an emergency and decided to divert to Vienna, the aircraft climbed to FL100 for the diversion. The aircraft landed safely on Vienna’s runway 11 about 45 minutes after the decision to divert and about 70 minutes after the go around. Vienna has a Eurowings engineering base, so that is said to be the reason for the diversion.
The airline reported a sensor indicated a problem with the landing gear, the crew decided to divert to Vienna as a precaution, where the aircraft landed safely and without any problem. The aircraft is being examined.
