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.


  1. This is no criticism, they plane CRASH LANDED into the bushes of the South Bimini Airport? You mean to tell me you (FARMER) don’t know the difference between fact and fiction?

    Fiction is when the NO one not the police nor Air Traffic officials fail to report something occurred FROM THURSDAY LAST WEEK!

    FACT is when Bahamas Press report it Friday morning, and then on Saturday, after the FACT the WUTLESS TRIBUNE decide to report what everyone tried to bury!

  2. Western air has been a provider for many unfortunate Bahamians especially Androsian. From the day this company was launched there has been criticisms from every angle of our country regarding the owners and operators. Keep soaring like you do Western Air one day in the near future you will be the National Carrier.
