Mid-air a Sky Bahamas flight from Nassau to Freeport experienced engine failure, earlier yesterday.
We can confirm that the plane safely landed, and we are grateful that passengers and crew are well as can be given the circumstances.
A SMALL SkyBahamas Airlines flight with five passengers and three crewmembers was forced to return to the capital shortly after takeoff on Tuesday after pilots reported hearing “strange” noises coming from one of the plane’s engines.
According to airline CEO Captain Randy Butler, the plane, which departed from Nassau at 11.30am headed to Freeport, Grand Bahama experienced engine trouble.
The plane returned to the Lynden Pindling International Airport safely. Mr Butler said all passengers were in good condition, except one, who reportedly was hospitalised.
