From CP - Canadian Press:

Jet plane forced to land in Saskatoon with engine on fire

SASKATOON — The pilot of a Canadian Northern Airlines Boeing 737 was forced to make a landing at the Saskatoon airport Thursday morning while one of the plane's engines was on fire.

Saskatoon police say they were called to the airport at about 1:30 a.m.

Airport authorities extinguished the blaze on the starboard engine.

The five crew and 102 passengers were not injured and were taken to the air terminal to wait for lodgings to be arranged.

The chartered aircraft Flight 1714 had departed from the Fort McMurray area and was scheduled to land in Saskatoon before continuing on to Montreal.

Transport Canada is investigating the cause of the fire.

...
was scheduled to land in Saskatoon

So which was it then, forced or scheduled ?
Wait until the extent of the emergency becomes clear.

It was scheduled and the emergency arose as the airplane was on final approach.

Nice to see they are as accurate there as in US. Never heard of Canadian Northern, but have Canadian North. Anyway, just nit picking.

That comment is kind of unnecessary, isn't it? I mean, c'mon.........it was obviously a landing at the end of a scheduled flight, as DC10sRULE's original post made clear. And I'm not sure how much more clear an emergency can be than an engine on fire. Is that kind of nitpicking response actually helpful, or does it advance the forum discussion, in any way?  Yeah sure

I was initially confused as to whether it was scheduled or not due to the terms used.

Had it said "emergency" language in the headline I might not have been.

Is that OK with you, Sir ?
