.
Someone is really confused there.

- 18 PEOPLE ON BOARD -

The PC-9 is a single engined two-seat training aircraft.

Yeh - i first read that way as well

But what i am thinking - landing on runway (tarmac) 18 - people on board 2

Should have been a comma or something in that - but after a second read - that is what i think was suppose to have been said - landing on runway 18 with 2POB

MAYBE ?

For people who dont know what Pan Pan Pan is, it is the step under mayday. Basically they're not saying that they need a full on response however fire trucks are dispatched in some cases. Dont know the exact meaning someone might know the full procedure?
