Local Newspapers and TV stations in Northwest Illinois continue to ignore safety issues at Allegiant Air. This morning an Allegiant flight to Stewart-Newburg Airport in New York from Clearwater, Florida made an emergency landing at St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport. Fox Channel 13 reported this morning (June 2) that the plane had hydraulic issues, and spent an hour circling in the Gulf dumping fuel. Fortunately, the plane made a safe landing.

What makes this matter even worse is that this is the second emergency at St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport by an Allegiant plane in two days. Channel 8 in Tampa, Florida reported that on Wednesday (June 1) Allegiant flight 871 made an emergency landing after declaring an emergency due to a mechanical issue.
