KIEV, Oct 4 (Reuters) - A Ukrainian Antonov-12 cargo airplane made an emergency landing 1.5 kilometres from the Lviv airport after disappearing from radar in western Ukraine early on Friday, Ukraine’s emergencies service said.

The Soviet-designed four-engine plane vanished from radar at 7:10 a.m. local time (0410 GMT) when it was 13.7 kilometres from the airport, the service said in a statement.

At 07:29, a crew member called the service and reported that the plane had made an emergency landing. The plane was found 1.5 km from the airport.

“Burning is not observed. The crew is being removed from the damaged aircraft,” the service said, giving no reason for the incident. (Reporting by Pavel Polityuk; Editing by Gerry Doyle)
