An Air Labrador flight from Blanc Sablon, Quebec, to St. Anthony, Newfoundland and Labrador had a tense couple of minutes for the  ten people (eight passengers and two crew members) who were on board Wednesday.

Upon landing the Twin Otter A/C’s nose landing gear collapsed causing the plane to veer off of the runway.

Passenger Grafton Curl,recalled the incident saying,

“We touched down on the runway, she made a few bumps, the front wheel come over and we ended up with the nose in the snow bank,” he added “It happened so quickly.”

Both Air Labrador and The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) are deploying teams to St. Anthony to investigate.

Luckily there were no injuries to either passengers or the crew and damage was reported as relatively minor.

The flight is known as a Skedevac, and ferries passengers around coastal Labrador and St. Anthony for Labrador Grenfell Health.
