TRUK LAGOON – AIR NUGINI

The news everyone has heard about Air Niugini had only hours earlier had an incident landing at the airport at Weno, Truk Lagoon. many conflicting reports are coming out about whether she landed short or overran the runway, or missed it completely – ending up in the sea around 100m from the end of the runway. Anyone who has been there knows that runway is incredibly short but most importantly it appears everybody escaped the plane on the surface before she sank, with the locals all rushing into action with boats out to the fuselage to assist.

More than anything I hope everyone is alright, retrieves their belongings or has them replaced, and that this doesn’t affect Air Niugini’s plans to keep flying the route to Truk-Pohnpei-Port Moresby. When United Airlines ceased Flying Cairns-Guam, Truk Lagoon became very difficult for Aussies to visit due to the complexities of travel. This route made Truk so much more accessible, more so than when United were in place. I would hate to see Truk Lagoon, its locals and businesses suffer from a loss of visitors that was seen between United ceasing and Air Niugini starting.
