Hello all:

I just heard on the news that an Air Canada jet had to make an emergency landing somwhere due to an engine fire. They were very vague on the details as it had just happened. Anyone got more info like what flight, what type of jet and what airport it landed at??

I will keep watching the news and see if they say anymore.

Thanks in advance,
Andrew.

It was just on CTV News Net now, heres the scoop:
An Air Canada A320, flight 201 was going to Vancouver (from Calgary I think) when one of it's engines caught fire. The pilot landed the plane back in Calgary, and emergency shutes were deployed. Information about injuries and fatalities weren't mentioned, but I'll keep watching!


Again, if any other info is available, please post it!

Regards,
Andrew.

Is it just me, or has the airliner apocalypse started earlier. In 96 hours we have had:

- 2 fatal airliner crashes
- 1 hijacking
- 1 Engine fire

To me this seems like not the best time to fly, I might just decide to stay in the UK until this all settles down.

I couldn't agree with you more! Isn't this supposed to happen on New Years?! I think that I'm going to stay in Calgary for a while. Well, I do hope that this doesn't go on much longer.

I was just watching the news, and guess what?
And Air Canada flight from Newark, NJ (no flight number, aircraft, or destination was given although from the pictures it looks like a DC-9-32) got a bomb threat from one of it's passengers. Here how the story goes:
When a customs agent asked a passenger if he had anything to claim, he said that he had a bomb in his bag. Officials checked his bag and found nothing. They then had to search every bag of every passenger (91 people aboard) both carry-on and checked. The total delay was 6 hours. When will this madness stop???!!!!

Any info, opinions would we appreciated.

Regards,
Andrew.

The Air Canada with the bomb threat was a DC9 going from Newark to Toronto (Flight 737). I heard that the passenger had already boarded the plane along with all the other passengers, and that the plane was just getting ready to be pushed back when he made some remarks that he had a bomb in his bag.

Here's another one to add:
About two or three weeks ago, a Canadian Airbus 320 had to make an emergency landing in North Bay on a flight from Halifax to Calgary after the pilots reported smoke in the cockpit. This was days after another Canadian Airbus 320 (possibly the same aircraft??) had to make an emergency landing (also in North Bay) on a flight from Calgary to Halifax! So Y2K has struck early!!!!!  

Yes, I have decided to stay home over the holidays!

That Canadian Airlines A320 landed in Thunder Bay (YQT). I have the newspaper clipping if somebody wants to argue with me. Thats bad news to hear about the Air Canada DC-9. Oh well.

If you want to see the clipping, email me

AC_340 is right. CP A320 landed at the Thunder Bay Airport (YQT) at around 10:00pm. If I remember correctly it had 30-40 people on board. The 320 finally left the next day at around nine at night. Cause: faulty ventilation fan in the forward cabin.

Well, I guess the media screwed up again somewhere. I got the information about the Canadian landing in North Bay from the CBC. I did not see any newspaper reports about this emergency landing, so I only went with the information given to me by the CBC.

As for this morning's emergency landing, the registration of the Air Canada is C-FGYS. It sounds like there were no injuries or fatalities, and everyone boarded another aircraft, and continued on to Vancouver.

I was at the airport tonight in Toronto, and guess what!!! I saw about five fire trucks surrounding a Canada 3000 Airbus 320 (registration C-GVXA), and could see them removing the luggage from the aircraft. Don't tell me we have another situation going on here.... I'll try to find out more information about this one. Let's hope that there is nothing wrong with this aircraft now.

No, just the usual media hype....

Don't get me wrong, the DC-10 and 747 accidents were tragic, but they also got the media machine spooled up. Thus awakened, the media then tends to breathlessly report on the more mundane types of problems that occur in everyday airline life (bomb threats, blown tires, mechanical problems) as if each of these occurances is just another "sign" that there's a "crisis" out there...

whoa slow down folks the situation with aircan a/c # 219 was not quite as dramatic as an engine fire in flight the crew had a problem with surging on one of the engines ( no. 2) and decided to return to yyc they then experinced a compressor stall and major surge which resulted in an excess fuel condition in the engine and when the engine picked up speed the large amount of unburnt fuel was ignited in the tail cone with resultant flame it sounds scary but isn't I'll get the whole scoop when I go into work on sunday anyway lets put a hold on this y2k stuff you know normally you probably wouldn't have heard a thing but every time there's a major accident vis a vis korean air every thing else gets major play for instance bet you didn't hear about a certain 319 that shedded it's entire engine cowl in flight and lost primary hydraulics huh thought so we were preocuppied at the time with some other major event and it slipped right by the media so there ya go.
