Was flying YYC-YYZ tonight and had a 30 min hold over Toronto before diverting to Ottawa. Pilot said over the PA that a plane slid off the side of the runway in YYZ and the airport was shut -down. We tried waiting but had to bail due to minimum fuel.

We landed in Ottawa, sat on the ground ffor 2 hours, refueled, de-iced, and returned to Toronto. Total trip time 8 hours. A westjet flight diverted with us into Ottawa and returned to Toronto 5 mins after us.


Anyone have any idea what happened in Toronto?

Quoting FighterPilot (Reply 3):

Not really, other than the operator and aircraft happened to be the same. YYB was landing (OK, how did they over shoot a 10,000' runway in a Dash????) and YYZ was taxying for take off. Considering the weather these flights operate in for a large portion of the year and the number of flights Jazz operate daily, its a credit to them there are not more accidents.
