Miami flight aborts landing due to high winds
Last night’s American Airlines flight to Bermuda from Miami had to abort its landing because of high winds.
Flight AA 308 made its approach to L.F. Wade International Airport on schedule, but the pilot opted not to land because of safety concerns.
After circling the island, the aircraft made an about-turn and headed back to Florida.
Late last night a spokesman for the airline said: “American Airlines flight 308 with service from Miami International Airport to L.F. Wade International Airport returned to Miami due to the weather conditions at Bermuda.
“The customers will remain overnight in Miami and the flight will depart in the morning.”
Earlier yesterday the Bermuda Weather Service issued a thunderstorm advisory, warning that winds of up to 60mph were expected to lash the island through the night.
