2005-07-13N4522VGlobal Peace AmbassadorsSeenYQTLanded at CYQT on Runway 07. There were some ground handling issues in progress while attempting to get people off the aircraft. The roll up stairs were a little too short and some 8 feet too low to allow those on board to exit. Ground crew on the ramp were saying there never has been a Boeing 747 on the airport before. Judging by the landing and roll out, the aircraft must have been extremely light. The aircraft was slowed to a safe taxi speed at the 4500 foot position on the runway.
