Instead, passengers will alight at a stage which will be built close to the gardens opposite the Phoenicia Hotel. Buses will then turn down towards St James Ditch and park briefly in one of the 14 bays where passengers will board.Prefect

Viscount (G-AMNY) at Luqa, 5 Jan 1960.614 viewsPlease remain in your seat until the aircraft has come to a complete stop.
Information from Viscount Network
The Viscount was taxiing along the runway after landing when a hydraulic system pressure loss occurred. Wheel brakes and nosewheel steering were inoperative and the plane left the runway, rolling down an area of downslope. Because of the hydraulic system pressure loss an attempt by the pilot to raise the gear failed. The aircraft crashed into the control tower. Investigation revealed a fractured pipe line and faulty operation of a non-return valve intended to conserve pressure if there was a break in the main hydraulic system.
The cockpit and nose was badly crushed and the fuselage broke open forward of the wing leading edge. All 5 crew and 46 passengers escaped without serious injury.
The radio equipment was stolen while the aircraft was stored awaiting disposal.
