Plane in plunge scare.

AN investigation was launched today after a plane carrying 220 people was forced to make a sudden descent shortly after take-off.

The Air 2000 757 was forced to drop 200ft soon after taking off from the Aegean island of Kos, bound for Manchester.

The airline said that the descent was controlled and was due to other aircraft in the area.

The flight ascended again and arrived in Manchester on time at around 5pm yesterday, an Air 2000 spokeswoman said today.

She said: "It has not been considered a near miss, it was a controlled descent. It will have been logged and it will be looked into."
