The Global Air Charters plane was flying from Kalispell to Salt Lake. They had dropped off their clients in Kalispell and they were flying to Salt Lake to fuel their plane according to Battalion Chief Bill Fisher. He reported that the instrument panel showed that they needed to disengage one of their engines. So they shut one of the engines down and called for a fire response. The pilot and only one flight attendant were on the plane at the time.

We are so thankful that they landed safely.

Police, fire, and other emergency responders scrambled shortly after 2 p.m. Thursday to the Bert Mooney Airport in Butte after a report that a Gulfstream III jet aircraft was inbound with one engine not in service.

Ultimately, the aircraft landed without incident and no one was injured.

Pam Chamberlin, business manager at Bert Mooney, said the airport became aware of the disabled aircraft after hearing from a control tower in Salt Lake City. Staff there indicated that the pilot was requesting emergency and fire personnel be put on standby, including the airport’s own fire department.

Emergency crews, told that the aircraft anticipated a hard landing, raced to the airport and vicinity.

Butte-Silver Bow Sheriff Ed Lester said a warning light had indicated a potential problem with a thrust reverser and protocol called for the pilot to shut down that engine.

Occupants included two pilots and a flight attendant, Lester said, and the plane was headed from Kalispell to Salt Lake City.

According to Chamberlin, the plane is owned by Global Air Charters Inc., based out of St. Paul, Minnesota. The names of the pilots and flight attendant are not being released, she said, and the airport will file an incident report with the FAA.

Lester said the incident caused “a few moments of anxiety here at the airport and for first responders.”
