AC Incident In Inukjuak (CYPH)

Wed Aug 23, 2006 10:46 pm

Talking to my brother-in-law, he indicated that an Air Canada aircraft had an incident around the end of 2005 in Inukjuak (CYPH). He called it a crash, but it was likely something more minor.

Would this be reported anywhere (Transport Canada or TSB)? He said it was a prop aircraft, so that would make it a Dash-8.

He also said the locals were quite amused because Air Canada does not normally service this area and that they had had an incident on this one flight.

I had never heard anything about a Jazz incident up there, but lots of incidents do unnoticed. I guess Jazz pilots aren't used to landing a Dash 8 on gravel, unlike the pros at Air Inuit.
