The airport on Virgin Gorda (VG) was temporarily closed for a short period today, Saturday, January 23 after a mishap with an airplane on the runway.
According to information, this afternoon, an Island Bird Air Charter airplane encountered a flat tire on landing.
Information suggests that no passengers were onboard the aircraft at the time.
The small plane was arriving to collect passengers.
No one was injured; however, the incident forced a short temporary closure of the airport.
"No one was injured; it was just a flat tire, just like when your car gets a flat tire and we really did not have any passengers onboard," an official from Island Bird Air Charter briefly stated when contacted.
The airport has since been reopened.
