Cargo plane makes safe emergency landing

An IBC Airways cargo plane with two people on board landed safely after emergency landing procedures were put in place at Owen Roberts International Airport on Monday.  

The Saab twin engine aircraft, which landed just before noon, had reported a problem with its landing gear upon approach.  

No one was injured. 

Airport officials later confirmed the plane was experiencing hydraulic problems with its flaps and landing gear during its flight from Miami to Grand Cayman.  

The Royal Cayman Islands Police helicopter was launched to check the aircraft’s landing gear prior to its touchdown on the runway. 

Traffic around the airport was closed off for about half an hour during the emergency response.
