A PenAir flight made an emergency landing in Sand Point on Tuesday, following an engine failure shortly after takeoff.
The Saab 340 aircraft returned to the airport safely, but passenger Nate Julian said it was a scary experience.
“It was kind of sketchy," he said. "A little bit hairy there for a minute.”
Headed to Anchorage, Julian said everything seemed normal until the plane reached the end of the runway.
“They went to ramp up the engines for takeoff," he said. "The left engine cut out a minute and then ramped up. Not a normal sound.”
