Footage has emerged this week of a CanaryFly flight from Las Palmas bouncing multiple times on the runway at Lanzarote before executing a go-around.
Incident: CanaryFly Flight Bounces on Lanzarote Runway Before Go-Around…
CanaryFly flight PM618 is a routine scheduled flight between Las Palmas and Lanzarote, with the affected rotation being operated by EC-MSM.
By March 2013, the aircraft was handed over to Azul as PP-PTY, which then remained with the carrier until September 2017, when it was handed over to Aeronova in Spain. The carrier was operating the aircraft on behalf of Air Europa.
The jet remained with the Spanish carrier until being handed over to CanaryFly in October 2019.
Video footage above from a webcam at Lanzarote Airport shows the CanaryFly ATR 72 trying to touch down before a gust of wing sent the aircraft upwards.
From there, it attempted to touchdown at least twice before running out of runway and executing it’s go-around.
EC-MSM was able to land successfully back into the airport on its second approach attempt, and departed again back to Las Palmas around 20 minutes after arrival into Lanzarote.
The Canary Islands does have some challenging airports to land in due to the wind conditions across the islands.
It is instances like this where you can see how difficult it can be to land in such conditions, particularly in a smaller aircraft like the ATR.
