An Edmonton-based aircraft made an emergency landing at the Fort St. John Airport this morning after the plane reported it had lost an engine. The King aircraft, owned by Bar X H, left Edmonton this morning and was destined for Fort St. John when the pilot radioed at approximately 9:50 AM that one of the plane’s engines had stopped functioning. The flight landed without incident. None of the eight people on board were injured. The aircraft was towed off the runway for maintenance of the malfunctioning engine. North Peace Airport Services Managing Director Todd Tripp says that the greatest risk in engine failure situations is the speed at which pilots must land the aircraft.

The airport remained open during the incident, but flights were diverted to another runway.
