The huge plane landed without incident just before 10 p.m. but personnel from St. John’s International Airport appeared to inspect the runway after the landing looking for possible debris.
The plane was followed by airport fire trucks as it taxied to the end of one of the runways. Aircraft crewmembers then exited the aircraft and used a stepladder to inspect one of the left engines.
The plane then moved to the Irving hangar where its engines were shut down. No information was available as to what may have caused the engine problem.
The NATO website states the Hungary-based C-17 is part of the alliance’s Strategic Air Capability which is operated by member countries give them the capability to transport troops, equipment and supplies across the globe.
