Aircraft incident at Kelowna airport

Just after 10:30 this morning (Oct 11), there was an incident involving a private aircraft at Kelowna International Airport.

YLW Communications Advisor Jessica Hewitt says "a privately registered Quest Kodiak was on approach, and it advised the air traffic control tower of a possible mechanical issue".

She says as a safety precaution "our emergency response teams were dispatched, and the aircraft landed safely at approximately at 10:37 am and there was no disruption to scheduled flight service." 

Hewitt says the three people on board were not injured.

The cause of the mechanical issue is being investigated.
