Air Canada Forced To Return To Airport After A Wheel Fell Off During Takeoff

(CNN) An Air Canada Express flight lost a wheel shortly after takeoff from Montreal-Trudeau International Airport, forcing the plane to turn back.

Flight 8684 was heading to Bagotville, about 230 miles to the north, Friday when the incident occurred. No one was hurt.

One of the 49 passengers on board captured video of the wheel detaching from the plane’s left main landing gear and shared it on social media.

The passenger paired the video with a sarcastic caption: “I’m currently on a plane that just lost a wheel. 2020 starting off well.”

Pilots were able to turn the Dash 8-300 around and land safely.

“The experienced pilots maintained complete control of the aircraft,” Manon Stuart, a spokesperson for Jazz Aviation, the operator of the flight, said in a statement.

“Our pilots are well trained to deal with such situations and responded according to our standard operating procedures. ”

Emergency vehicles were called “as a precautionary measure.”

“Our maintenance personnel in Montreal are conducting a thorough inspection of the aircraft to determine the cause and proceed with the necessary repairs,” Stuart said.
