Stabroek News Sunday - - REGIONAL NEWS -

(Trinidad Guardian) Af­ter one hour of fly­ing from Toronto’s Pear­son In­ter­na­tional Air­port (YYZ) to Portof-Spain, a Caribbean Air­lines (CAL) flight sud­denly be­gan ex­pe­ri­enc­ing tech­ni­cal dif­fi­cul­ties and was forced to re­turn to Canada.

Flight BW601 landed a short while ago at Pear­son In­ter­na­tional and pas­sen­gers on board were said to be very trau­ma­tised. Some of them be­gan pray­ing loudly af­ter the plane was forced to turn around and re­turn to its start­ing point, the T&T Guardian was told.

“It was a hor­ri­ble land­ing, very rough and fast,” one pas­sen­ger who did not want to be iden­ti­fied said from Canada a short while ago.

The pas­sen­ger added that when the pilot an­nounced that the flight had to turn around, ev­ery­one ini­tially thought it was a joke.
