|THEY CAME IN FOR A LANDING|
|This from Yvonne van der Putten (Brinkman) who lives in Aruba.|
Last Tuesday a Canadian Air Ambulance mistakenly took our 1/4 mile drag strip at Palo Marga for our Queen Beatrix International Airport!!!!!
It was enroute to Brazil and told the air traffic controller that it had the landing strip in sight and landed. To leave again, everybody and everything needed to be unloaded for take off (patient included).
Small Caribbean Island, so.......small airstrip!?
|How far off course were they? Check the map below taken from Aruba.com, see the international Speedway? That is where they landed. At the other end of the island.|
