manchester_united_2013 [1]Manchester United was involved in a scary mid-air incident Tuesday in Germany.

The facts, as reported by various outlets across the continent: A team charter was forced to abort its Tuesday evening landing at Cologne’s Konrad Adenauer Airport in Germany only 400 meters above the runway.

Reports said another plane was on the runway as the club attempted to touch down ahead of its Champions League match on Wednesday at Bayer Leverkusen in Germany’s Rhine region.

Pilots on the plane abandoned the landing, circled the ground and then touched down successfully 10 minutes later without further incident.
