THE SETTLEMENT, Anegada, VI- It might have been a slightly tense moment at the Auguste George Airport in Anegada yesterday, December 21, 2012 when two tires for a small aircraft reportedly blew out during landing.

According to our sources at the Auguste George Airport, the aircraft was in motion after landing on its return from Virgin Gorda when the tires blew out.

The incident reportedly occurred around 4:30 P.M.

Sources further said the aircraft, a Cessna 402B with registration number N8091, rolled to a stop without much trouble after the tire issues.

The pilot was reportedly the lone person in the aircraft, which was returning to Anegada to pick up passengers on the sister island.

Operations Manager of Fly BVI, Jeffrey Brown, told Virgin Islands News Online that the aircraft was on the ground when the tires went "flat". He added that no one was injured.

It was only on December 6, 2012 when a local airline was forced to crash land one of its aircraft at the Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport due to difficulties experienced with its landing gear.

According to information received, the aircraft was a small cessna aeroplane belonging to VI Airlink and one of its three landing gears failed during an attempt to land.

Two persons, including the pilot, were reportedly aboard the aircraft at the time of landing.
