Aircraft incident at Kamloops airport delays flight

KAMLOOPS - The Kamloops Airport experienced some minor delays this morning after an aircraft incident on the runway.

Airport manager Fred Legace says the small, general aircraft lost part of its main landing gear as it touched down this morning, Aug. 8.

“It came to rest near the runway,” he says. “There was one person on board.”

No one was injured.

Legace says one Air Canada flight was delayed after the incident, but operations are continuing at the airport now, using a slightly different runway arrangement.

Crews are working to remove the damaged aircraft, he says.
