Passenger Grafton Curl, originally from St. Lewis, called it a typical flight until the landing.
“We touched down on the runway, she made a few bumps, the front wheel come over and we ended up with the nose in the snow bank,” he said. “It happened so quickly.”
Air Labrador will be issuing a statement later today, but according to its twitter account, there were no injuries and damage was minor.
