An Alaska Airlines commuter plane en route to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport yesterday had to shut down one of its engines and make an emergency landing.
‘Alaska Airlines Flight 2033, operated by Horizon Air, departed from Vancouver, British Columbia, enroute to Seattle at 11:45 a.m.
After reaching cruising altitude, the pilot noticed higher-than-normal oil temperatures. He shut down one engine, and as a precaution he requested emergency priority handling at Sea-Tac Airport.’
The de Havilland Dash 8-400, with 76 passengers and four crew, landed safely at Sea-Tac at 12:32 PM.
There were no injuries reported.
