An interesting interview and insight from one of the survivors, I tried to ad it to the old thread but it was too old.

Saw this last night on The National.. it's a riveting interview. She seems so focused and practical. I guess that scientific background just kicked in. I hope the three survivors heal quickly. What a thing to go through, my heart goes out to the victims and their friends and families

I missed the broadcast last night, and really wanted to watch, glad that its available online. A very strong woman for sure, all of them really. Crazy coincidence with the military exercise happening in Resolute at the same time. Just incredible to think that anyone survived. Her explanation of the impact and rolling across the tundra was so matter of fact and surreal. I hope the community of Resolute and the families affected heal from this tragedy.

One of the most riveting interviews I have EVER watched, in regards to an airliner accident. I taped it to watch it again.
Nicole Williamson was so poised, and detailed in every description of the accident. Nothing sensationalistic, like what we are used to seeing on any U.S. Channel.... Thank you to CBC And Peter Masnbridge for being so gentle and dignified during the interview. Nicole was absolutely nothing short of amazing to listen to.

I wish Nicole, and the other two survivors a speedy recovery, and my deepest sympathies to everyone affected by this tragedy.

As a sidenote, the CBC's Peter Mansbridge has his own direct connection with the airline industry in Canada's north. He was an airport agent for YWG-based regional carrier Transair (which was acquired by Pacific Western Airllines in 1979). He was based at Churchill (YYQ) in northern Manitoba (the best place to go to see polar bears in the wild) when he was hired by the CBC to work for their local northern operation. Apparently a CBC manager wating for a flight heard him make the boarding announcements and thought he had a good voice for radio and asked him if he was interested in a CBC job. And the rest is history.

She seems very poised considering what she's been through. I can't seem to find a seat map for a 732-C and since AS retired theirs a while back I can't remember if 17A is over the center wing box. It is on their 734-C. Reminds me of AA Flight 965 where the passengers who survived were all seated within 2 rows of each other.

I have a lot of respect for Mansbridge. We're very fortunate to get the CBC and am able to watch The National where I live.

possible configuration of Air North accident plane


Taken from a website of an Air Inuit 737QC (I revised the layout), this would be the probable layout of the Air North plane. I am pretty sure Nicole said that the Cargo started right in front of her.

Click the 4th gray button from the left below the aircraft for the configuration used on that flight. It was in the 5 pallet configuration.

Thanks to both of you. The combi's I'd flown on were almost always in the 3 pallet configuration. So much for my theory.

My apologies to anyone at Air North. I inadvertantly listed the wrong airline when I was editing the picture I posted.
