Emergency personnel rushed to the airport this afternoon [May 29] after a U.S. navy plane notified Bermuda that they would be diverting to the island to make an emergency landing as one engine had failed. BFRS Lieutenant Jay Donawa said that it was not commercial airline, but a US Navy P-3 Orion with approximately 15 people onboard. He said the pilot called in and asked for assistance. The plane had lost power in the #4 engine, and had approximately six hours of fuel left. Local personnel provided a standby response, and the aircraft landed safely at 4.05pm.

    I sure do miss those days! Some of the best days were flying in one of these babies. I thought they diverted due to losing engine #4. Sure looked like it was working fine to me, but hey I'm an IFT not an FE so what do I know? I think someone just wanted to R&R on Bermuda.

    The P3 can fly on two engines if need be.. why the emergency declaration? Sure does smoke though...
