[EDITED 19:09 PM] Finally the plane landed perfectly at the airport and now the causes of this emergency landing will have to be investigated. End desired by all, congratulations to all the crew for the maneuver and coordination with the airport itself and emergency services.
This is not being the best day of the Barajas airport in Madrid. The afternoon, or rather the morning, began with a problem caused by the flight of one or more drones near the airport, so the controllers finally decided to restrict takeoffs and landings until the situation was under control.
But the worst was yet to come and is that shortly after things began to normalize another problem appeared and in this case something more serious in our opinion. A plane that was destined for Canada, took off from the airport breaking parts of the landing gear, so the flight was immediately canceled and when it was in the air, the only thing that could be done was to land again in Madrid, so an emergency landing is being prepared right now.
In summary, the flight is canceled and the plane flies over the capital at low altitude, burning fuel that it had prepared for the trip at a relatively low altitude, so many users are tweeting this and social networks are used to watch videos of the plane flying with a total of 130 people inside who are prepared to make this emergency landing that we undoubtedly hope and wish goes perfectly.
At the moment while we are writing the news, a crisis committee is meeting at the Madrid-Barajas airport, waiting for the emergency landing of Air Canada flight ACA837.
It is important to note that the rest of the flights and activity at the airport continue to be normal despite the problems previously mentioned by the drone and some delays. Mainly what is being prepared is everything necessary to assist, help and protect this landing from the Boeing 7367 for which 6 teams of firefighters from the Community are deployed in Barajas, 10 resources from SUMMA and a Red Cross emergency tent.
The Airport is operational. https://t.co/L0g4RuMUfn

La expected time is about 19:30 pm today. An Army F-18 fighter flies alongside the plane to assess possible damage to the aircraft. By your side Javier Martin Chico, spokesman for the technical department of the SEPLA pilots union, stated a while ago on RTVE:
Keep in mind that they spend more or less time, it is good. It is something they have under control and what they are looking for is having the right weight for a good landing capacity in Madrid.
If you would like to follow the path of this plane you can do it from this website. We hope that everything ends in one more anecdote about the airport. We leave the audio in which the pilot informs passengers of the problem asking for peace of mind:
