Another emergency landing at Munro
Jun, 13 2007 - 8:00 AM

HAMILTON (AM900 CHML) - For the second time in two weeks, a
Flyglobespan jet has had to make an emergency landing at Hamilton's
Munro International Airport.
Reports indicate the Boeing 757 had an engine malfunction about 20
minutes after taking off.

The pilot then declared a mechanical emergency and turned the plane around.

It landed safely shortly after 12:30 this morning.

Two weeks ago, a Flyglobespan Boeing 757 returned to Hamilton airport
after the pilot reported an emergency involving a surging engine.

That plane landed safely, with passengers reporting bangs and flames
coming from an engine.
