Emergency services were pressed into operation at the Grantley Adams International Airport today after a light aircraft crash landed on the runway around noon.

According to airport officials, the single-engine, six seater aircraft, operated by local company Executive Air was carrying two passengers and a similar number of crew members when the incident occurred. No serious injures were reported as a result of the rough landing.

Airport Corporate Communications Specialist, Keith Goddard, reported that the plane had just taken off when it experienced a problem and was returning when the mishap occurred, forcing airport crash and rescue tenders to respond.

In order to allow emergency personnel and accident investigators to perform their duties, and then to permit heavy duty equipment to remove the plane, a number of arrivals and departures were delayed, with one Virgin Atlantic flight being diverted to St. Lucia.

Just after 3 p.m., however, said Goddard, all airport operations returned to normal
