A northern Canadian airline says it will recover from a fire that destroyed its hangar and three of its six planes in Inuvik, N.W.T....

From CBC North: http://www.cbc.ca/canada/north/story...-aklak-air-fire.html#ixzz14SKWGWdh

Luckily nobody got hurt in this one, appears that a King Air, B99 and Twin Otter are the only victims.


What could possibly go wrong?

Thanks for sharing this link. Looks like an interesting fire. Really glad no one got hurt. I bet the Aklak Air execs are glad they have fire insurance. Considering they only had one fire truck, its lucky that only this one building burned.

"Local firefighters said their lone tanker truck did not have enough water to extinguish the blaze, so crews focused on protecting nearby buildings, including Aklak Air's office."
