An A-330 Airbus charter flight scheduled from Toronto to Lisbon had to make an emergency landing today in the Azores after its engines failed to work. The pilot of the plane managed to land the craft safely with only a few of the nearly 300 passengers suffering minor injuries. Guest host Steve Inskeep speaks to airport operations official Francisco Santos of Aeroporto Lajes about the ordeal.
