All domestic air service in the Marshall Islands ground to halt over the weekend.
It came after a mid-flight engine shutdown that forced the only Air Marshall Islands plane to return to Majuro for emergency maintenance.
There were no injuries as a result of the problem on the flight.
The national airline's only other plane, a 34-seat Dash-8, was grounded two weeks ago after a pilot allowed the temperature on one engine to go over the maximum allowed on start-up .
The airline has been forced to send that engine off-island for inspection and overhaul.
Flights have been cancelled for at least 48-hours and possibly longer, depending on maintenance requirements.
The only airline flying to the country now is Continental Micronesia, which services Majuro and Kwajalein by connecting them to Guam
