Nassau, Bahamas: Residents and visitors had the scare of their lives yesterday as Western Air crash landed and ran into the bushes as it made its way onto the runway in South Bimini.
One resident said it was the shock of her life as the pilot lost control of the plane as it descended onto the runway. The passenger told Bahamas Press that the aircraft had to be removed out of the bushes following the ‘landing scare’. No one was injured during the incident and still no official word has yet come from Western Air or transport officials about the insident.
Bahamas Press is becoming concerned with the safety of Western Air’s aging fleet.
