A passenger jet has safely made an emergency landing at Mogadishu’s international airport after an explosion pierced a large hole in its fuselage.
If you’re a small plane looking to make an emergency landing, there’s really no better place than the LA River. Mostly because large stretches of it aren’t so much a river, as it is a long concrete wasteland. Ever seen the movies Drive or T2? Then you know what I’m talking about.

Check out this video of a Rockwell B-1B Lancer bomber landing at Roger Dry Lake, at Edwards Air Force Base, California. After discovering a failure in their front gear, the crew was directed to land in this location because its clay surface minimizes airplane damage.
OH MY GOD THERE'S A BOMB ON THE PLANE. That's what one passenger on board thought when he saw a cell phone being charged inside the airplane bathroom. The plane, headed for America, had to make an emergency landing in Dublin, Ireland to deal with the "bomb".
