Arsenal women's plane apparently caught fire

Arsenal women's team survive horrific scare following 2-2 draw against Wolfsburg

April 24, 2023 By Michelle Bonsu
Arsenal's return home after a 2-2 draw against Wolfsburg turned into a nightmare after their plane apparently suffered a major issue.

Over the weekend, Arsenal's women's team faced Wolfsburg as the Gunners hope to eventually win what would be their first UEFA Women's Champions League trophy since the 2006/07 campaign. This is the second consecutive time that Arsenal are being pitted against German opponents, having successfully dumped Bayern Munich out in the quarter-finals after securing a 2-1 aggregate win.

Despite Wolfsburg grabbing a 2-0 lead inside the first 25 minutes, Arsenal were able to claw their way back into the tie and scored two to finish the first leg level at 2-2. Yet, the joy the team certainly would have felt following their impressive fightback soon turned to horror during their return back to London.

According to reports, the team's plane was hit by a bird and subsequently burst into flames while attempting to take off from the runway. Fortunately, no one was hurt, but it meant that Jonas Eidevall's squad had to stay an extra night in Germany and leave on Monday afternoon.

Arsenal will look to book their ticket in this season's final when they take on Wolfsburg for the second leg on May 1st.
