Emergency Situation @ Yyc!

Tue Jan 08, 2002 4:18 am

Just listening on my scanner, and the East Fire Chief told dispatch "The aircraft is going to make a flyby, and then will try to land"

Anyone know what's going on? I will post more if I hear anything else.
Someday, we'll look back at this, laugh nervously, and then change the subject.

"When you get a visual when he is starting to land, let me know please"
"Roger"

I am listening on a police/EMS scanner, so I cannot hear what ATC is saying, and I can't get AC type or airline. Can anyone else monitor these freqs?

whats happining with the aircraft, is it still on the runway?
i imagine a cargo plane will flyin with replacement parts, as a landing with a tire blow out, could cause a bit of damage to the gear, and i dont think aircanada regionals hanger is equipeped to deal with repairs for a 737, or they could contract SPAR, or westjet to handle it?
i am going to calgary pilot supply after school to get my private pilot exam study guide, i will try to see where the aircraft is.

Last I heard, around 1, fire crews escorted it off the runway. Probably a visual inspection of the entire aircraft and replacing any damaged parts. There is a large Canadi>n hanger here equipped to deal with these repairs.

A blown tire doesn't take long to change. Around an hour. I experienced that onboard a 767.
