  • Plane Makes Emergency Landing at Stephenville Airport

    (Submitted photo.)

    There were no injuries after an emergency landing at Stephenville Airport over the lunch hour.

    The front landing gear of the PAL Airlines aircraft failed to lock, causing the plane to land with its nose touching the runway.

    The Dash 8—en route to Deer Lake—had 47 passengers and crew on board.

    The crew proceeded to Stephenville for landing due to adverse weather conditions in Deer Lake.

    PAL Airlines says there were no injuries. The passengers were transported to the terminal in ground vehicles.

    The incident has forced some changes to flight schedules, in addition to existing weather-related changes.
