A Starbow flight embarked on a shaky landing at the Tamale Airport in the Northern region yesterday morning.
“Flight S9110 which was en route from Accra to Tamale has been involved in a minor incident … and as a result Starbow’s BAe aircraft with registration number 9GSBB went through the barricade at the end of Tamale runway and stopped,” an official statement from Starbow said.
It is unclear what triggered the unusual landing but sources say the pole holding the front tyre of the plane developed a problem while it was taxing to land properly.
“It is noteworthy that both the crew and the passengers were disembarked safely via the stairs.
“Our sincere concern goes out to all the passengers, friends and families involved. We are still gathering the facts concerning the events. Starbow is cooperating fully with the authorities in charged.
“We’ll inform the media of any significant additional information as soon as it is immediately available,” CEO of Starbow James Eric Antwi said.
