A Calm Air Flight had to make an emergency landing with just one of its two engines working in Rankin Inlet on July 21.
The incident was recorded by Simon Kolit, who shared his video with Kivalliq News. The footage shows the turbo-prop plane approaching with just one propelling spinning before landing without issue. Another video that Kolit posted shows emergency crews waiting for the aircraft to land on the tarmac.
