Commuter flight makes safe emergency landing at DUJ

December 29, 2011

FALLS CREEK — A commuter aircraft that had taken off from the DuBois-Jefferson County Airport landed safely minutes after take-off due to a mechanical issue Wednesday.

The plane — carrying 10 passengers total, according to Falls Creek VFD Chief Mark Miller — had just taken off, but around 2:38 p.m., the crew radioed the tower in order to make an emergency landing.

“They were showing some icing on the rear side of the wings,” Miller said, adding that the flight return to DuBois was a precautionary measure.
