(From Aviation Accidents)

Key Lime Air flight LYM147, a Swearingen SA226-TC Metro II, registration N398KL, landed gearup on runway 01L at Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport (ICT/KICT), Wichita, Kansas, went around and returned for a safe landing on the same runway.

 The airplane sustained unspecified damage (All 6 props struck runway, causing tips on all props to break off). The pilot was not injured.
The aircraft departed Dodge City Municipal Airport (DDC/KDDC), Kansas, and was headed to KICT. A review of the ATC recording shows that the initial approach was a casual/usual approach/landing phase with no reported problems. The pilot went around and asked to land on runway 01L again, it appears the pilot may have forgotten to lower the gear on the initial approach/landing.
"Affirmative, had ahh, had a... a gear up landing".

Got almost all of it, except the emergency crews, no audio at all from them, but pretty calm both tower and cockpit.

A Delta Airlines Airbus A320-200, registration N347NW performing flight DL-2706 from Grand Rapids,MI to Minneapolis,MN (USA) with 141 passengers and 6 crew, was climbing out of Grand Rapids' runway 17 when the crew stopped the climb at 9000 feet reporting they had lost their left hand engine (CFM56) and needed to return to Grand Rapids. The crew requested to stay above the clouds while working their checklists advising they had picked up some ice during the climb and subsequently returned to Grand Rapids for a safe landing on runway 26L about 30 minutes after departure.

A replacement A320-200 registration N358NW reached Minneapolis with a delay of about 4 hours.

The occurrence aircraft is still on the ground about 9 hours after landing back.

I couldn't find the original emergency declaration,
and going around the big island, could find no other audio so far, other than normal traffic.
But, wow, some big weather.  If you download the entire feed, everyone being vectored around.
and the pilot only knowing about the flight attendants at first, still looking for any more pertinent audio.

The aircraft continued for a safe landing on Honolulu's runway 04R. 33 passengers and 3 flight attendants sustained injuries, 20 of them were taken to hospitals, 11 of them were diagnosed with serious injuries.

36 people reported being injured, 20 of them were taken to hospitals, 11 of them were diagnosed with serious injuries.

Medical care was provided to several guests and 3 crew members for minor injuries, some of them were swiftly transported to hospitals. The passenger seat belts signs were on at the time of the clear air turbulence encounter, that occurred about 30 minutes before landing. There was a patch of unstable air that caught the flight crew by surprise without any prior warning.

National Weather Service in Hawaii said, there was a weather advisory posted for thunderstorms at the time of the turbulence, the flight possibly went into a thunderstorm.

Passengers reported a number of passengers were not buckled up and were lifted out of their seats and hit the cabin ceiling.

The occurrence aircraft is still on the ground in Honolulu about 10 hours after landing.

I could not find the call in for the need to divert, but later it was a fire indicator panel that was the cause.
Fuel dump and divert.  No fire found, plane towed/taxied safely after checking, no fire.,shortly%20before%202%3A00%20p.m..

SASKATOON - There was an unusual sight at the Saskatoon airport Thursday afternoon when an Alaska bound plane had to make an emergency landing.
A spokesperson for the airport says the aircraft was a Boeing 747 cargo jet travelling from Cincinnati to Anchorage.

The plane landed in Saskatoon shortly before 2:00 p.m..

Saskatoon emergency crews were waiting on the runway prepared to assist.

The airport could not confirm the reason for the emergency landing.

No passengers were on the cargo plane but there were 7 crew members, and no one was injured.

While the Saskatoon airport is no stranger to diversions and emergency landings, planes of this size landing here are rare.
