Airplane Mechanical issues put Emergency services on standby at Terrace airport
As airport officials and Terrace Emergency Services all awaited the return of a scheduled Hawkair flight.
The Monday afternoon flight left Terrace at 1:30 but shortly after departing the city, the Hawkair Flight crew encountered mechanical issues and made the decision to return to the Terrace airport.
That return prompting the Terrace RCMP, Terrace and Thornhill Fire Departments and BC Ambulance to stage at the Terrace airport as a precaution.
The incident however did not require any attention from those emergency services, the flight with sixteen passengers and three crew members aboard landing without incident.
The Aircraft was then inspected and the issue identified before the plane was returned to service.
