Hydraulic problem

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.

Enjoy!!

An Embraer 145 was flying from Wichita to Kansas City (USA) with 48 people on board. It was cruising at FL310 when the crew noticed a hydraulic problem. At this time they were 58nm from Kansas City and decided to continue to Kansas as the weather conditions there were good.

The plane landed safely at Kansas City International airport 32 minutes later and came to a stop on the runway. The crew requested to be towed from the runway and as a result two other approaching planes were switched to an alternative runway. The plane was towed to a remote area to be checked by maintenance and the passengers were disembarked.
