A Skippers Aviation aircraft (similar to the one above) suffering engine problems made an emergency landing at Perth Airport earlier this morning. Emergency crews were called to the airport about 6.55am after reports a plane, a Dash 8 Q300, with engine problems was due to land. The plane was chartered to carry 50 mine workers to a place called Leinster, 900 klms North East of Perth. The plane departed from runway 21 at 6.35am local time and climbed to flight level 2,900 before declaring an emergency and returning to the airport, landing on runway 21 at 6.58am.
The aircraft landed safely and all passengers and crew were unharmed.
The registration was VH-XKI (CN 587) and it first flew on the 1st May 2002. The aircraft entered service with Air Nostrum from Spain.
