During a routine training exercise, an American MQ-9 Reaper drone made an emergency landing in Poland, near the town of Mirosławiec, according to the Polish General Staff's press service.

On March 18, after 23:00 near Mirosławiec, there was an emergency landing of a US military unmanned aircraft flying in Polish airspace. The landing took place according to procedures in a safe uninhabited area. The scene is guarded by special services, and investigative actions are being carried out by the military police, according to the statement.

On March 11, a Russian military transport plane An-12 requested an emergency landing at the Khurba airfield in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. There were 8 people on board. The plane was flying from Nizhnevartovsk.

Also, on February 10, in the US, a passenger plane made an emergency landing on a highway and caught fire due to a malfunction. According to preliminary information, the plane had problems with its landing gear. According to officials, there were five people on board the small plane, three of whom survived.

"They were scheduled to land about 3:15 here in Naples, and about two or three minutes before that, our tower received word from the pilots that they have, quote, lost both engines," said Robin King, the director of communications for Naples Airport. The plane crashed a few kilometers from the airport.
