August 19, 2014

A problem with an airspeed indicator forced an outbound flight to make a quick return to Bermuda yesterday [Aug 18], with the unexpected landing completed successfully and all 114 passengers unaffected save for lost time.

A Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre [BMOC] spokesperson said, “On Monday, August 18 at 9.06am, Bermuda Maritime Operations Centre received a call from the Airport Duty Officer at LF Wade Airport.

“The Officer reported that a recently departed aircraft was returning to Bermuda due to a fault with its airspeed indicator.

“The aircraft had 114 persons on board and would be landing with three hours of fuel on board. Ten minutes later, the aircraft was confirmed as having safely landed in Bermuda.”
