An aircraft made an emergency landing at the Abbotsford International Airport after it lost contact with the airport’s radar tower.
Emergency crews were called to the airport at around 10:45 a.m. but were called off within five minutes.
The plane temporarily lost contact with the tower but was able to land without incident once radar was re-established said Parm Sidhu, general manager at the airport.
“At one point we didn’t know anything, whether it was a gear or if it had power or anything,” Sidhu said. “Because we didn’t have any information we called in 9-11 resources, but once it showed up on radar the tower landed it.”
