About Airplane emergency landing

Airplane emergency landing (some times also referred as 'priorit landing') is the process in which an airplane (cargo / passenger / military) is made to land at an airport or else where due to an emergency situation. The ground staff of the airport generally gives instructions and directions for a flight to land at a specific airport to resolve the emergency situation. The airport can be the same airport from where it took off, a near by airport to the flight that is in travel or the destination airport itself.
